    Well done lad, bit more pace, and hughes being hughes.
    Do I contradict myself?

    He reminds me a bit of Mitch Marsh in that bowling fast outswingers seems to come pretty naturally to him but he hasn't exactly devoted a lot of time or planning to his bowling so he can lose it a bit when batsmen get on top of him, particularly as he has an easy to line up trajectory. He bowls whatever the opposite of a heavy ball is (light ball I suppose). He's a lit bit slippery than Marsh in general but I think both are going to be more long-form bowlers than short-form bowlers.

    Phil Hughes is the worst. No match awareness. No aptitude. No understand of the art of batsmanship. No confidence. No runs.

    Hughes and Wade are boys playing against men.

    Look how low Hughes' hands were when he tried to play that ball off the back foot.

    Totally inept wasn't it. He wouldn't do it in first class cricket, but he is just a fragile kid who has so much growing up to do.

    yes jordan. Kinda disappointed he isn't standing in the slips with no Trott. Takes some superb catches in the slips.

    Thanks Prince EWS. I have Cricinfo:
    "Think Hughes was beaten for pace, the bottom hand came off the handle and he knew where this was going as soon as he connnected - poor Pippy, it's been a long few months"

    Pippy?

    along with failing to bowl dry, this is one of the biggest sins you can commit
