Winter Watch: Sensational batting from Hughes

19 Jan 2024

In this week’s Winter Watch we recap some outstanding batting from Daniel Hughes in the Big Bash, we take a look at how James Coles and Jack Carson are getting on with the England Lions and we have updates on the form of Dan Ibrahim and Bertie Foreman in Australia. 

Ibrahim and Carter cruise to victory

Last week we told you about Dan’s 3 wickets and 40 runs in day one of a two-day fixture in Australia for Newcastle City and day two (played the following Saturday) turned out to be even more fruitful for the Sussex all-rounder.

Ibrahim picked up another 3 wickets in the first innings, to take his bowling figures for 6-51 from 19.4 overs and with his opponents put into bat once again, Dan bowled superbly to take a fifer, conceding just 19 runs in the second innings. 

His performance, along with captain Oli Carter’s century in the first innings, gave Newcastle City a comprehensive victory in round 9 of the 1st Grade Rippit Premiership competition.

Bertie Foreman’s form continues in Australia

Another product of the Sussex Pathway Bertie Foreman has spent his winter getting gametime for Sydney based Manly Warringah. 

Last week Bertie showed his quality with both bat and ball when he took 2-31 from his 10 overs and made a half-century (58). 

He followed up that performance with more runs and wickets on Sunday when he took 3-55 from 10 overs and contributing 34 runs with the bat against Randwick Petersham.

In white-ball cricket in Australia this winter, Bertie has taking 13 wickets an average of 11.07 and an economy of 2.8. 

Keep an eye out on our channels next week as we caught up with Bertie for an interview over Zoom to find out what life is like down under, his form this winter and his hopes for the 2024 season. 

Carson and Coles roar for the Lions

Sussex duo James Coles and Jack Carson’s tour of India is underway with the England Lions, with both making an impact on the side in their first appearances. 

England Lions started with a two-day warm up against India A, before a three-match four-day series against the hosts, with the first match ending in a draw. 

Coles made a useful 20 runs from 23 deliveries, batting a number 8. Carson, who did not bat, took 2 -65 from his 14 overs. 

The Lions are now 3 days into their opening four-day fixture, with Jack Carson shining on day 1 of the game. He made a blistering half-century, chalking up 53 from just 35 balls in the first innings. 

At stumps on day 3, India A require 331 runs going into day 4 with 6 wickets remaining. 

Two more matches remain, details of which can be found below:

24-27 January: England Lions v India A, Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad

1-4 February: England Lions v India A, Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad

Daniel Hughes' runs book Big Bash Final

Overseas Daniel Hughes played a pivotal role in a nail biting final group game for the Sydney Sixers as they ensured their place in the Big Bash qualifier with the final ball of the innings. 

Returning to the top of the order, Hughes made 74 from just 43 deliveries as he anchored the innings to give the Sixers a 3-wicket victory in one of the games of the tournament in the Big Bash. 

That knock included 7 fours and 2 sixes at a strike rate of 172.09.

But he wasn’t done there. In today’s qualifier Hughes built the platform for victory once again, making 42 from 33 as the Sixers booked their place in Wednesday mornings Big Bash Final. 

Go well, Daniel! #GOSBTS
