Sydney - The New South Wales state government says it will conduct a coroner's inquest into the death of Australian cricketer Phillip Hughes during a first-class match at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

The former Test batsman was struck on the side of the head by a short-pitched delivery while batting for South Australia against New South Wales in a Sheffield Shield match on November 25, 2014.

The 25-year-old Hughes died two days later without regaining consciousness.

A coroner's court spokesperson said on Friday that a date for the inquest will be set on September 29.

Cricket Australia has already announced a review into Hughes' death and says it will share information with other authorities investigating the fatality.
