Alex Hughes, a product of the Derbyshire academy, is a Staffordshire-born allrounder who bowls right-arm seam and can bat at the top of the order. He gained the reputation as a potential captain-in-waiting after Derbyshire's director of cricket Kim Barnett praised his "exceptional leadership skills" in awarding him a new two-year contract in September 2016. Hughes had skippered Derbyshire in nine limited-overs matches, standing in for the injured Wes Durston.
Hughes, a product of Staffordshire (where Barnett was briefly a team-mate) and the Derbyshire Academy, made his first-team debut for Derbyshire against Yorkshire in the 2011 Friends Life t20. His first-class debut followed against Sussex at Hove in August 2013, and he shared in a spurt of late-season success for the county which failed to spare them from relegation. An attacking hundred against Northants in a miserable 2015 for Derbyshire was his first in the Championship.
He may have failed to reach the hundred that was his for the taking but there were shades of Hashim Amla's greatness on display at Trent Bridge
