Bio

An aggressive top-order batsman, Daniel Hughes forced his way into the NSW Blues side on sheer weight of runs.

Hughes set the benchmark for other batsmen early in the McDonald’s Sydney Grade competition with scores of 78, 66, 146 and 200 in the first four rounds of the 2015-16 competition. 

He continued this form in the Toyota Futures League where he scored 300 against Tasmania at Coffs Harbour. 

Hughes was called into the NSW Sheffield Shield team for the round five match against Queensland in Mackay. He went on to score 425 runs at 38.63 in six matches. 

This included two centuries, with Hughes hitting four consecutive boundaries against Tasmania to not only win the match, but also bring up triple figures.
