Phil Hughes 13th man Test Cap Number 408 - India vs Australia
Australian captain Michael Clarke has passed fitness test and will lead Australia in opening Test against India in Adelaide from December 9th and late Phillip Hughes symbolically named as 13th man. Clarke was suffering from hamstring injury and feeling discomfort because of death of his close friend Hughes which left the cricket world into mourning. He did not address the pre-match media conference at the Adelaide and fast bowler, Mitchell Johnson, confirmed that the Clarke will lead Australia in what will be an emotional day. Hughes was also named as 13th man who died after being struck by a bouncer during a domestic game in Sydney. A number of tributes are also planned for the Test with the Australian players wearing Hughes Test cap number 408 on their playing shirts and black armbands in honor of Hughes
