This is powerful.

A moving remembrance campaign has begun for Australian cricketer, Phillip Hughes, who sadly lost his life this week.

After the emotional Cricket Australia video, fans around the world are now paying their own heart-warming respects by leaving out their cricket bats in memory of Hughes and it is simply spine-tingling.

The beautiful campaign was started by Australian native, Paul Taylor, who posted the first picture alongside the now viral hashtag #PutOutYourBats.

And people all over the globe have begun to leave out their bats to mark the life and memory of Phil Hughes in such a sweet and fitting fashion.

And someone even posted a touching picture to rally behind Sean Abbott after it was his ball that struck Hughes in the neck.
