A productive career
Hughes, though had a short career, but it was productive one. He represented his country in 26 Tests and 25 ODIs in which he scored 1535 and 826 runs respectively. In a short career across formats, he had already 5 international hundreds to his name. The left-hander made his debut in Test series in South Africa after the retirement of legendary opener Matthew Hayden and also scored a half-century in the second innings.
