    I don't think he needs your help tbh.


    Didn't he just average over 100 through the last county season?.....
    Haha whilst I think it is possible he may struggle in England, the **** Hughes cops is getting ridiculous now. He's so young, has made test runs before, and he has been given pretty short runs in the Australian team which have not helped.

    I'm not his biggest fan, and lol'ed hard when Martin/Guptil were owning him, but nevertheless he is unfairly maligned.

    On top of that, wasn't he dropped in the 09 Ashes because of his dismissals against short bowling, not outside off poking?

    Haha, exactly. Scapegoat. Though Watson has obviously done reasonably well since.

    The good luck in England bull**** is just that.


    Bellerive in it's current state, weather and all, is exactly like English conditions.


    Hughes is in hot form, he could dominate in India if his form continues.

    Serious no-ball issues this morning.

    Treating the practise game like a net session must contribute.

    Have to say it's a seriously gorgeous green oval, this Hobart. Lot of nitrates used there, I'm thinking.

    Beautiful looking surface tho.

    Skull didn't make the trip.

    Dunno, but he's already said Hughes' technique hasn't changed.

    Obviously hasn't seen the TV split screens.
