Clarke: We'll retire number 64 shirt to honour Phil Hughes

In an emotional tribute cricket Captain Michael Clarke has said Australia will retire the number 64 shirt to honour the memory of Phil Hughes.

We're going to miss that cheeky grin and that twinkle in his eye. 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, Hughesy's one-day Australia international shirt number, 64, could be retired, to which they agreed.

That means so much.
