SYDNEY (AP) Phillip Hughes, the Australian batsman who needed emergency surgery after being knocked out by a cricket ball, remained in a critical condition on Wednesday.

Australian team doctor Peter Brukner issued a statement saying Hughes had further scans at St. Vincent's Hospital during the morning and that his condition was unchanged from overnight.

The 25-year-old Hughes was batting for South Australia in a Sheffield Shield match against New South Wales at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Tuesday when he was felled by a sharply rising delivery that struck him behind the left ear.
