Sachin Tendulkar pays tribute to Hughes

Sachin Tendulkar on Wednesday joined the cricket world to mourn the tragic death of young Australian cricketer Phillip Hughes, who passed away last Thursday after being hit by a bouncer. In a tribute to Hughes, who would have turned 26 last Sunday, Tendulkar wrote in his twitter page: “Will miss you Phil.

Your enthusiasm to learn and drive for perfection was most impressive. #FarewellHughes.” The 41-year-old Iconic batsman also posted a photograph of him along with Hughes, who was part of the IPL franchise Mumbai Indians in 2013. Former India skipper Anil Kumble also paid his tribute. “Phil Hughes RIP...#63notout cricket will miss you,” wrote the spin legend in the social networking site. Hughes was on Wednesday laid to rest in his home town, Macksville, in a funeral attended by thousands of friends, family, teammates and fans.
