Hughes made his first-class debut for New South Wales, aged just 18, in a Pura Cup match against Tasmania in Sydney. He scored 51 after opening the batting.
He scored his maiden first-class century in the Pura Cup final win over Victoria in 2008, again in Sydney. At the age 19, he was the youngest player to score a hundred in the showpiece game.In 2009, Hughes breaks another record by becoming the youngest cricketer to score a century in each innings of a Test when, aged 20, he scores 115 and 160 against South Africa in his second Test in Durban. “I didn’t actually know about that record until I walked into the sheds and a couple of guys mentioned it but it was one very special moment,” he said.
