Shane Warne pays tribute to Phil Hughes


Former Australian spin legend Shane Warne paid his tribute to late young cricketer Phil Hughes, whose untimely death left a void in the cricketing world.

Warne said, “It was one of those days when you wake up and you feel like this cannot happen. People wake up and go to play sports and you don’t think like such things can happen.”

“Someone said a good had gone and yes he was one of the good guys.”

More than 5000 people have attended the emotional funeral service in Hughes’ hometown. Family, friends, former team-mates and other cricket greats were among the attendees. The funeral began with the opening music ‘Forever Young playing’.
