Michael Clarke's Phillip Hughes Eulogy

Watch as Michael Clarke delivers an emotional, moving eulogy at Phillip Hughes' funeral service in Macksville, New South Wales.

"Oh, he would definitely be calling me a sook (crybaby) right now, that's for sure," he begins.

"I don't know about you, but I keep looking for him. I know it is crazy but I expect any minute to take a call from him or to see his face pop around the corner.

"Is this what we call the spirit? If so, then his spirit is still with me. And I hope it never leaves."

He goes on to talk about his time playing with Hughes and the tributes that have been paid to the batsman following his death last week.

"We must dig in," he added, struggling to hold back tears.

"We must dig in and get through to tea. And we must play on.

"So rest in peace, my little brother. I will see you out in the middle."
