Video: Michael Clarke Pays An Emotional Tribute To Phillip Hughes
By Paul Ring

A visibly distraught Michael Clarke read out a statement last night on behalf of the Australian team and staff about the late Phillip Hughes who died on Thursday after being hit by a ball during the South Australia/New South Wales match.

The Australian captain also confirmed that Hughes' shirt number; 64 will be retired in his honour.

“The world lost one of its great blokes this week and we are all poorer for it. “Our promise to Hughesy’s family is that we will do everything we can to honour his memory. “Last night I asked Cricket Australia if Hughesy’s one-day international shirt number, 64, could be retired, to which they agreed. That means so much.
