Thanks for sharing firstlane. I became a fan of Hughes when I first saw how he smashed Steyn and co. What great innings those were and also at the age of 19. I thought the guy would be 1 of the top young international players now. Unfortunately, the coaches tinkered with Hughes's technique and style and he just hasn't been the same since. He was unorthodox but if it was working for him then why change it? Well I hope that he can become a stronger player now after going through a lot. I still believe that he'll be a great player for Australia when he comes back.

As for Khawaja, I wasn't nearly as impressed with him as I was with Hughes. He never looked in control against the bowling he was facing which shows that maybe he's not quite ready yet for the big leagues. I still feel he's 1 of the most promising Australian players.

It would be great for Khawaja and Hughes to turn out as good international batsmen because they're fun to watch and would be a shame for them to go to waste.
