Five years ago, the cricket fraternity was in shock after losing one of their pearls. Australia batsman Phillip Hughes took his last breath on November 27, 2014, and left us after being hit by a bouncer which caused a brain hemorrhage. It was a huge incident that shook the whole world.

Hughes' teammates found it hard to come out of the trauma. The emotions were seen during the Test series against India in 2014 which followed the incident. 

Steve Smith and David Warner were two good friends of Hughes. They remembered him on the fifth death anniversary of their mate. Both the cricketers posted their pictures with him. 

Warner shared the picture in which he was celebrating New South Wales Blue's Champions League T20 win, while Smith's post was from a domestic red-ball game for NSW. Both the Aussie cricketers wrote they are missing their buddy. 

The horrific incident had happened on 25 November 2014, when Phillip was struck on the back of his neck while batting at the Sydney Cricket Ground in a Sheffield Shield match. He was on 63* while batting and hence the #63NotOut hashtag became a trend.
