Emotional Australia dedicate World Cup victory to Phil Hughes !
Australia captain Michael Clarke dedicated the World Cup triumph to Phillip Hughes.
As Steven Smith pulled the winning boundary to crush a New Zealand fairytale and clinch a fifth World Cup for Australia on Sunday, Michael Clarke’s side celebrated a glorious end to a journey marked by a period of self-doubt and grief for a fallen teammate.
Captain Clarke retires from one-day cricket with his legacy intact but his team will charge on to the 2019 tournament with renewed belief in their ability to re-generate, adapt and rebound from the stiffest of challenges.
Two years after their annus horribilis of 2013 and less than three months after the death of batsman Phillip Hughes, Australia resumed their dominion of world cricket with a ruthless seven-wicket victory at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
