Hughesy only played one game for the Strikers in BBL|02, but it was enough, as he blasted 74 from 48 balls to lead the Strikers to victory in game one over the Perth Scorchers.
The Aussie Test and ODI batsman loves to hit boundaries with classic cut shots and straight drives. A dashing stroke maker by nature, Phil Hughes has an outstanding record in the T20 format. Hughes has made 849 runs from 24 domestic T20 matches, averaging 47.16, well above most batting averages in the shortest form.
A country boy at heart, when Hughesy isn’t plundering runs at Adelaide Oval he’ll head back his family property in country NSW and look after his much loved cattle.
Hughes was one of the leading run scorers in the English T20 competition. He is in stellar form and will be an exciting inclusion in the Strikers top order.
