Phil Hughes might just be a massive disappointment

Phil 'media frenzy' HughesWe hope he isn’t, because it’s exciting when unusual players have an impact and it’s good for your side to beat one featuring great players, but everyone has gone a bit mental about Hughes.

He’s played a couple of seasons of domestic cricket, one Test series and a bit of second division county cricket. He’s been exceptional, but his is not a record that matches up to Ricky Ponting’s for example. If Phil Hughes were to get ‘found out’, it would most likely happen in Test cricket and if that did happen, it would be unlikely to happen in the first Test series in which he played. It might happen in the second.

He’ll probably score a good few runs, but let’s see, shall we? Australia have a handful of other batsmen to worry about, after all.

  1. I don’t find it strange that Hughes scored big at Lord’s. Southgate and Oval (all flatties) against Glamorgan, Leicestershire and Surrey (all weak bowling attacks).

    It is the fact that he did so well against the Saffers (probably the best pace attack in the world) in Safferland that bothers me.

    The battle between England’s bowling attack and that distinguished and lengthy Aussie middle order is the main course, no question.

    But the England bowling attack against Aussie openers (including Phil Hughes) is a pretty decent hors d’oeuvres.
