Blues star shows them how it's done
FORMER Macksville junior cricketer Phillip Hughes continues to make every post a winner.
It was just over 12 months ago that the 20-year-old made his first-class debut for New South Wales yet on Tuesday he brought up his 1000th run while yesterday he continued to show enormous batting skill while everyone else around him struggled on a damp Bellerive Oval wicket.
When the covers returned to the field during the tea break of the Sheffield Shield clash against Tasmania yesterday, the SpeedBlitz Blues had slumped to 4-69 in their second innings but the gun opener remained not only unbeaten but had scored 55 of those runs after scoring 93 in his first dig.
Tasmania scored 127 in their first innings' reply to the Blues' 172.
Hughes has scored more than half of the Blues runs so far in both innings.
More than 90 minutes have been lost to rain delays yesterday as showers move across the ground.
