Warner understandably broke down when asked to recount the death of his close friend, and said he struggled to deal with the aftermath of the event.
The 28-year-old rode alongside Hughes on the medicab following the incident and found it difficult to speak about – even to his wife Candice Falzon.
“When I got home after that day, I was standing in the shower, facing the wall, hands on my head, going ‘Why?’,” Warner is quoted as saying by Cricket.com.au.
“The thought of coming off that day holding his hand was … it hurts every day when I think about it.
“It’s hard to talk about it now, it was hard to talk about it with Candice.
“I turned around and said ‘Why? Why does this happen in the game of cricket?'”
Warner scored a century in Australia’s first match following Hughes’ death at the Adelaide Oval.
“Looking into the skies and the stands it brought a big smile to my face to say I’ve done it for him, I’ve done it for my mate,” Warner said.
