Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150

0.5

Anderson to Hughes, no run, bouncer immediately for Hughes, but down leg side and he isn't worried by it

0.6

Anderson to Hughes, no run, 'wait on!' comes the bellowing call from Hughes as he jumps across to the off side and defends

Australia 1/0   PJ Hughes 0* (2b)

2.1

Anderson to Hughes, no run, Anderson bangs it in, testing Hughes on the hips and he watches it through to Prior

2.2

Anderson to Hughes, 1 run, Hughes gets off the mark with a nudge off the hips down into the ground and away behind square leg

Australia 5/0   PJ Hughes 1* (4b)

3.1

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, solidly defended back down the pitch

3.2

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, on the pads and Hughes jams it towards leg, not too far from Cook under the helmet - he has to be careful there

3.3

Tremlett to Hughes, FOUR, good on-drive from Hughes as he gets the full face of the bat on this one, through mid-on and not leaving a big gate as he did in his first innings at the WACA, when he was bowled playing a similar shot

3.4

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, left alone outside off

3.5

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, left alone once again

3.6

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, half a shout for lbw as Hughes gets one swinging in, but it was certainly sailing down the leg side

Australia 9/0   PJ Hughes 5* (10b 1x4)

4.2

Anderson to Hughes, no run, Hughes jumps back into his crease and defends

4.3

Anderson to Hughes, no run, ah, now this one gets the shoulder of the bat as it seams away a touch and squares Hughes up, running safely along the ground to gully

4.4

Anderson to Hughes, no run, Hughes gets another on the pads and turns it to leg

4.5

Anderson to Hughes, no run, straight line from Anderson - Hughes jumps back and defends

4.6

Anderson to Hughes, no run, on the pads again and Hughes can't quite get it away, it's off the pads to where short leg was earlier, but Cook has now been taken out

Australia 10/0   PJ Hughes 5* (15b 1x4)

5.3

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, pushed across Hughes, who leaves alone outside off

6.1

Anderson to Hughes, 1 run, clipped off the pads through midwicket

Australia 13/0   PJ Hughes 7* (19b 1x4)

7.1

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, good line on middle stump and it's going well over the top - Hughes thinks about playing and then decides to leave

7.2

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, shouts of catch it as Hughes takes one on the side and Prior dives to his right, he can't quite get there and Aleem Dar calls it a dead ball - Hughes wasn't really playing a shot at that

7.3

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, terrific delivery! Good length to make Hughes play, and it jags away off the seam to beat the outside edge

7.4

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, worked to leg by Hughes - England are really testing him on the hips with short leg in

7.5

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, there's an appeal from England, for either a catch or lbw, but both are denied by Aleem Dar. Swinging down leg and striking Hughes above the knee roll before lobbing to gully - no bat involved and England don't challenge it

7.6

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, short and wide of off, Hughes goes for the slashing upper cut, but can't connect

Australia 13/0   PJ Hughes 7* (25b 1x4)

8.4

Anderson to Hughes, no run, good line just outside off and straightening, but Hughes patiently leaves it alone

8.5

Anderson to Hughes, no run, fuller and straighter from Anderson, Hughes drives to mid-on

8.6

Anderson to Hughes, no run, ah, this one moves away from Hughes and he's beaten outside off, just dabbing half-heartedly

Australia 14/0   PJ Hughes 7* (29b 1x4)

10.1

Bresnan to Hughes, 1 run, immediately Bresnan is on the leg stump and Hughes works it through midwicket for a run

10.4

Bresnan to Hughes, no run, nudged into the ground and away to midwicket

10.5

Bresnan to Hughes, no run, a bit of bounce this time surprises Hughes, who defends towards point

10.6

Bresnan to Hughes, no run, solidly defended by Hughes, who pushes towards the off side

Australia 16/0   PJ Hughes 8* (33b 1x4)

11.4

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, that's a good, probing line just outside off and full enough to entice the drive, but Hughes resists his urges and leaves it

11.5

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, left alone outside off and Prior ends up taking this at head height

11.6

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, nudged past short leg but Tremlett bounds across to do the fielding himself and prevent a run

Australia 17/0   PJ Hughes 8* (36b 1x4)

12.2

Bresnan to Hughes, no run, down the leg side, Hughes doesn't play

12.3

Bresnan to Hughes, no run, punched away off the back foot towards point

12.4

Bresnan to Hughes, no run, excellent delivery from Bresnan beats the bat of Hughes and flies through to Prior, there's a shout for caught behind and Bowden says no - Strauss also decides against reviewing it

12.5

Bresnan to Hughes, FOUR, lovely shot from Hughes! He's got a hint of width outside off and punches it off the back foot through cover, good timing and Alastair Cook tries to chase this down, making a horrible mess off the boundary rope as he crashes into it with his slide

12.6

Bresnan to Hughes, FOUR, cut hard through point and that's two boundaries in succession! Good shot, but it was a bit too wide from Bresnan

Australia 28/0   PJ Hughes 16* (41b 3x4)

13.6

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, ah, Hughes survives an edge just short of gully! Well bowled as it squared him up and his edge looked as if it would carry, but then bounced safely short

Australia 31/0   PJ Hughes 16* (42b 3x4)

15.1

Anderson to Hughes, no run, Anderson replaces Tremlett and starts outside off stump, Hughes continues to exemplary leaving

15.2

Anderson to Hughes, FOUR, Hughes is rewarded with a fuller ball, in the slot outside off stump. He stepped forward and drove crisply, without timing it perfectly, but enough to pick up a good boundary

15.3

Anderson to Hughes, no run, this time it's outside off and left alone

15.4

Anderson to Hughes, no run, touch uncomfortable here for Hughes. Anderson's length ball nipped back and squeezed between bat an pad into the midriff

15.5

Anderson to Hughes, 1 leg bye, this drifts a touch leg side and Hughes is typically closed off around the hip area. Still manages to nibble it towards fine leg, but only off the thigh

Australia 38/0   PJ Hughes 20* (47b 4x4)

16.1

Bresnan to Hughes, 2 runs, sign of Hughes's growing confidence as he drives on the up outside off stump through extra cover. Quite an audacious shot actually and similar to his MCG first-innings dismissal

16.2

Bresnan to Hughes, no run, this is a touch fuller from Bresnan and Hughes can do nothing but defend

16.3

Bresnan to Hughes, no run, decent delivery here, offering to nip away and Hughes is careful in defence

16.4

Bresnan to Hughes, 3 runs, another drive, expansive as well but not quite where Hughes intended. It was dished up outside off and Hughes launched into it, driving on the up with a touch of inside edge straight of mid-off for three

Australia 43/0   PJ Hughes 25* (51b 4x4)

17.1

Anderson to Hughes, no run, oh dear, this is slipped a long way down the leg side. Hughes has no need to play, so doesn't

17.2

Anderson to Hughes, no run, Anderson aims full around off stump, willing Hughes to have a dart, but Hughes has nothing of it and leaves alone

17.3

Anderson to Hughes, no run, this is a touch shorter and Hughes gets back in defence, looking actually quite solid

17.4

Anderson to Hughes, no run, again Anderson offers Hughes some width to have a lash at outside off and Hughes expansively leaves alone. As if to make the point to everyone, not least himself

17.5

Anderson to Hughes, no run, this is defended securely as Hughes gets everything behind it

17.6

Anderson to Hughes, no run, maiden over, but a great one from Anderson. Finishes with a back-of-a-length delivery that flicks this hip as Hughes leaves alone

Australia 43/0   PJ Hughes 25* (57b 4x4)

19.1

Anderson to Hughes, no run, Anderson switches to around the wicket, possibly because of the footholes which he is unhappy with. The venture doesn't work here as it's fired well down the leg side

19.2

Anderson to Hughes, no run, banged in short, well directed too but Hughes easily pops under it

19.3

Anderson to Hughes, 1 leg bye, again Hughes has no real way of playing off his hip so feigns a shot and it thuds off the body to fine leg

Australia 46/0   PJ Hughes 25* (60b 4x4)

20.1

Swann to Hughes, no run, Swann from around the wicket, finds a good length and line and Hughes defends

20.2

Swann to Hughes, FOUR, touch too short, bit wide as well and the bounce at the SCG means it sits up asking to be put away, Hughes does the honours, chopping behind square for four to bring up a very good 50 partnership

20.3

Swann to Hughes, no run, this is left alone outside off stump

20.4

Swann to Hughes, no run, hint of spin here, but it starts a touch short and Hughes easily defends off the back foot

20.5

Swann to Hughes, no run, bit of spin here and plenty of bounce, off a good length too. Hughes leaves alone but Swann will like it

20.6

Swann to Hughes, no run, this is floated up a touch fuller and Hughes carefully pushes forward to defend

Australia 50/0   PJ Hughes 29* (66b 5x4)

22.2

Swann to Hughes, no run, no great turn here at all for Swann and Hughes defends from the crease

22.3

Swann to Hughes, no run, Hughes gets deep into his crease to defend back to the bowler

22.4

Swann to Hughes, no run, Hughes is again playing off the back foot, turning this to short fine leg

22.5

Swann to Hughes, no run, this time Swann drags Hughes forward to defend

22.6

Swann to Hughes, 1 run, touch of width allows Hughes to unfurl a chopped cut shot to point for a single

Australia 53/0   PJ Hughes 30* (71b 5x4)

23.1

Anderson to Hughes, no run, Anderson just manages to get Hughes to poke away from his body. As it is it's blocked well enough to point

23.2

Anderson to Hughes, no run, short and angled into Hughes, catches him on the hip and it trickles away

23.3

Anderson to Hughes, no run, Anderson finds a hint of away swing which means Hughes has to defend carefully

24.2

Swann to Hughes, no run, again Hughes gets well forward to defend

24.3

Swann to Hughes, no run, outside off stump, Hughes has no need to play so turns his back on it

24.4

Swann to Hughes, no run, good delivery here, touch of flight and some spin too, just gets Hughes to push at the ball away from his body in defence

24.5

Swann to Hughes, no run, good to watch this, Hughes is really getting his entire being behind his defensive blocks

24.6

Swann to Hughes, no run, nudged around the corner to finish the over

Australia 54/0   PJ Hughes 31* (81b 5x4)

26.1

Swann to Hughes, no run, quicker ball from Swann and Hughes thrusts his pad at it in defence

26.2

Swann to Hughes, no run, floated up a touch more and Hughes stretches forward to defend

26.3

Swann to Hughes, no run, angled into the pads and Hughes nudges to leg

26.4

Swann to Hughes, no run, Hughes is being pinned by Swann, not offering him anything and he has to defend

26.5

Swann to Hughes, no run, thrown up a touch more and Hughes can only defend

26.6

Swann to Hughes, no run, very careful defence to finish the over. Hughes is pinned to the crease, doesn't seem to be able to skip down the wicket and work the ball into gaps

Australia 54/0   PJ Hughes 31* (87b 5x4)

27.4

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, good delivery, nipping back from a length and Hughes skips back to defend

27.5

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, shortish delivery sends Hughes back and he whips the bottom hand off the bat as he defends to short leg

27.6

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, identical delivery to end a decent comeback over for Tremlett

Australia 55/0   PJ Hughes 31* (90b 5x4)

29.1

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, banged in short, bit of waste really, outside off stump and Hughes gets to crouch under it

29.2

Tremlett to Hughes, no run, very short again, touch too wide of off and Hughes has nout to do with it

29.3

Tremlett to Hughes, OUT, The battle ends for Hughes! What a disappointment. Tremlett bangs it in on a length outside off, Hughes could have left it but instead fenced fatally and it nipped the edge and flew to Collingwood at third slip who took the chance above his head

PJ Hughes c Collingwood b Tremlett 31 (121m 93b 5x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Australia 55/1   PJ Hughes 31 (93b 5x4)
