To be fair to Hughes, he is very young for an International batsman, and but for the weakness of the Australian side he wouldn't have been thrust into the Test scene so soon. He's only just turned 23 so he's got plenty of years yet to work on his game and turn it around. In 15 years time we might have a very different view of him.
