David Warner must be feeling the loss of Phillip Hughes more than most.
I was often taken with the affection and mateship between Matthew Hayden and Justin Langer. Opening batsmen have a degree of camaraderie different to all other players in a team. Yes the bowlers work as a team to find weaknesses in a batsman, and batters work as a team by forming partnerships. But most batsmen only come in as replacements for someone who is out.
Opening batsmen go into battle together to take the brunt of an aggressive and fresh bowling lineup. These two men form a special bond, and now David Warner has lost his mate.
Good luck David, and I hope you find another special mate.
