Hughes hoping to earn Test recall in winter Ashes
Sydney: Australian batsman Phillip Hughes is reportedly hoping to reignite his hopes for a Test recall in the winter Ashes series with his composed showings in the one-day format in India, after being dumped from two Tests into the summer Ashes in England.
Hughes endured a horror series in Australia`s miserable Test tour of India earlier this year, scoring just 147 runs at an average of 18.38, that led to questions on everything from his ability to play spin to his future in the Test team.
However, News.com.au reports that Hughes said that he feels more comfortable in his game after making some alterations, which is evident in his improved showing against World Cup and Champions Trophy winners India.
Although Hughes expressed his disappointment at losing the Test series in India, he hinted at his hope for a Test recall in the Ashes, saying that he had worked on a couple of things that needed improvement, adding that if feels nice to come back to India and get a couple of runs on the board.
