Cricket Australia has commissioned an independent review into the death of former Australia batsman Phillip Hughes, who died after being struck by a cricket ball.
The former Worcestershire batsman died in November two days after being hit on the neck by a delivery during a match at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
CA chief executive James Sutherland said in a statement:
When this tragedy happened, I said that it was a freak accident, but it was one freak accident too many.
Never again do we want to see something like that happen on a cricket field.
We have a deep responsibility and obligation to look into the events of that awful day to understand everything that occurred and then see what could be done to prevent a similar accident happening in the future.
This is not an exercise designed to apportion blame on any individual for what took place.
It is about making sure that as a sport we are doing everything in our power to prevent an accident of this nature happening again.

Worcester's Ghelvuelt Park has been awarded Grade II Listed status by Historic England.
The park is considered a rare example of a War Memorial Park which provides leisure, sport and commemorative functions.
It was built in 1919 in memory of local soldiers who died at the Battle of Gheluvelt - one of the early battles of the First World War. Now, the park incorporates homes for disabled servicemen.
"We are very pleased to see that the importance and beauty of Gheluvelt Park and its environment has been recognised.
"We hope this will ensure this lovely part of Worcester will continue to be enjoyed by many generations to come."
