Profile

With an unorthodox homemade technique and an impressive first-class record to his name, Phillip Hughes burst onto the international scene with a record-breaking performance against South Africa in 2009.

In just his second Test, a star was born when Hughes became the youngest batsman in history to score centuries in each innings of a match.

But despite the dream start to his career, things rapidly turned sour for the left-handed opener.

He was dropped just three Tests after his heroics against the Proteas and he has yo-yoed in and out of Australia’s Test XI ever since.

The lowlight of that rough period came during Australia’s two-Test series against New Zealand in 2011, when he was caught by Martin Guptill off the bowling of Chris Martin in four successive innings.

A switch to South Australia in 2012 seemed to reinvigorate Hughes and he also showed his ability in 50-over cricket, becoming the first Australian to score a century on ODI debut.
