And yet the short term thinking of dropping him gave us what? Twatto and Ed Cowan. Yeah that worked out.
To me Hughes just looks like a batsman with glaring technical flaws all over the place. Defensive technique is loose, bat often comes down from 3rd slip, not great against the short ball, not great against spin
Superb hand/eye co-ordination and a great striker of the ball capable of scoring very quickly when he's on song but has never looked like he belonged at test level when I've seen him.
I don't even know what Spikey is trying to prove from his lunch time project. Is he suggesting that Michael Hill should wear the baggy green which allows Aaron Finch a spot for Victoria and he gets to be captain too?
Maddo and Dom Michael have the most consistent scores from that lot.
mainly that everybody sucks
except for Daniel Hughes
I'm just going to say a name.
why didn't he get more of a run after he made that big ton on debut? (i think it was actually his debut too)
Has only played one first class match. Not sure how he didn't snag a game last season.
Averages like 160 from memory.
yeah, seemed bizarre to pick someone out of the blue, they smash a run a ball (iirc) 160 and then they're dropped for good. must be a complete ****wit.
Didn't he struggle in grade last season? Or is that wrong?
Is it just me who thinks Hughes is even worse than Khawaja?
EDIT: Just read the thread. Evidently not.
pews has summed that whole thing up a ouple of times. i'll let him quote on his own posts
lyon (o'keefe if lyon struggles but he'd bat higher)
