Profile

Simon Hughes was a right-arm fast-medium bowler who was a key part of the Middlesex side through the 1980s, although his contributions tended to be overlooked in a side that was packed with internationals. Nevertheless, he won four Championship titles with the county. A graduate of Durham University, he was a natural recruit for them when they gained first-class status in 1992, but like so many of their imports, he was by then past his best.
