    I think he'll be the long term Aussie opener in all 3 formats unless they find 2 better openers who are specialist T20 players which I doubt.
    All-Time Test XI:
    Gavaskar, Boycott, Tendulkar, G.Pollock, V.Richards, Sobers, Gilchrist (wk), Warne (c), Waqar/Wasim, Lillee, Ambrose.

    Anyway, frey is old news - first showed-up in about March 2007 or summat. Fortunately, as you can see, he's not been what you'd call a regular visitor.

    Hence, my somewhat groan response every time you return.

    Maybe not this....

    But I predict zero with him becoming Flintoffs rabbit against the bouncer. He looked very very ordinary today.

    Averages 70 vs Steyn and he'll become Flintoff's rabbit?1?

    Gilchrist never faced Steyn TBF.

    Either way, predicable knee-jerk reactions from predictable quarters after Hughes messed-up against one short delivery. Let's wait and see whether he does it regularly, hey?

    Bradman was said to flinch against the short stuff too. Therefore Hughes = Bradman.

    I think it was proven in SA when Steyn and co vowed to get stuck into Hughes with the short stuff that it has to be very good short stuff to cause him any trouble. The same as any other batsman. If he starts getting hit on the helmet against short balls that are two feet outside off-stump he has a problem.
