Emotional Warner And Clarke Hammer India For Phillip Hughes

Cricket starts to move on from its darkest day.

Posted on

Two of Phillip Hughes' best friends, Michael Clarke and David Warner, have hugged and looked to the skies while piling on the runs at the beginning of the first test against India at the Adelaide Oval.

Hughes' memory was celebrated before the start of play on Tuesday. It has been two weeks since Hughes was struck in the neck and died, sending shockwaves through Australia and the global cricketing community

Australian cricket captain Michael Clarke was visibly teary before the start of play. However, India made a provocative statement, sending down a ball similar to the one that hit Hughes to welcome the Australian captain to the crease.

Former Australian test cricketers were transfixed by David Warner's dominant batting in the emotional circumstances.

Great first session by Australia. Warner outstanding #Warner #AUSvIND

I hope I am wrong here, but there is a chance that might be the last we see of Michael Clarke this summer.
