Sean Abbott will decide whether he wants to return to first class cricket at the SCG on Tuesday, two weeks after his bouncer felled Phillip Hughes, according to the New South Wales Blues.
The 22-year-old returned to training on Tuesday, before attending Hughes’s funeral on Wednesday.
New South Wales chief executive Andrew Jones said it would be solely Abbott’s decision whether he would play against Queensland, but said it would be the same for the rest of his teammates.
“He’s in the same boat as everybody else,” Jones is quoted as saying by News Corp.
“It’s a matter for him to see what he wants to do so we’ll let him make that decision.
“We’ll just regroup then and confirm where everybody is at and if everyone’s comfortable to play or not comfortable to play or where individuals are at, and go from there.
“I can’t speak for them either. They’re the ones playing not me, so we’ll just have a chat tomorrow and see where they’re at and in another day or so we’ll have a chat after that. We’ll take it one step at a time.”
