Oz opener Hughes working his way back to the top

Sydney: Out of favour Australian opener Phillip Hughes has been working his backside off in an effort to make it back to the top.

According to his coach, Neil D`Costa, he has worked out the kinks in his game that led to his dropping.

D`Costa said he has been working on Hughes`s use of his wrists and his body position.

``We did some similar stuff with Michael Clarke just before he took over as captain. The results are there to see when it comes to that,” a leading daily quoted D’Costa, as saying.

“I`m confident that Phil has worked through the areas he need to improve on, and through his hard work and dedication I think he has put himself in the position to reach the top again,” D’Costa added.

He also rubbished rumors of Hughes shifting to another state from New South Wales.

D`Costa said: “I know he met with NSW and told them he wants to stay and play cricket in this state.”
