Michael Clarke's Instagram Tribute For Phillip Hughes Is A Real Tearjerker

"Goodnight buddy."

Posted on

Australian cricket captain Michael Clarke yesterday posted 10 pictures of Phillip Hughes on what would have been the late batsman's 26th birthday.

Hughes, who was known as Clarke's "little brother", died last week after being struck in the head by a cricket ball.

The pictures paint a portrait of Clarke and Hughes as inseparable Aussie mates.

With Clarke taking Hughes under his wing.

And they must have always been talking cricket.

Teaming up to take on the crowd at pub trivia.

Or taking down some fast bowlers in a test match.

Clarke paints a picture of Hughes as a mischief-maker.

Who was insanely popular among his teammates in the Australian cricket team.

Clarke and Hughes: The big brother and little brother of Australian cricket.
