Aussie Captain Michael Clarke, speaking at Hughes' funeral, said that he is definitely honored to speak on Hughes' funeral today. A teary Michael Clarke tried to control his emotions and said: "I walked in the middle of the SCG on Thursday night. Those same blades of grass beneath my feet where he and I and so many of his mates here today have built partnerships, taken chances and lived out the dreams we painted in our heads as boys. The same stands where the crowds rose to their feet to cheer him on and that same fence he sent the ball to time and time again. And it is now forever the place where he fell."
