Hughes in Boxing Day squad as cover for Ponting
Advertisement
#1
Ricky Ponting's elbow injury earned left-handed opener Phillip Hughes a call-up as cover for the Australian captain for the Boxing Day Test against Pakistan.

Hughes, who has not played a Test since being dropped after two games in the Ashes series earlier this year, would replace Ponting in the playing eleven if the skipper does not recover in time from his left elbow injury suffered during the third Test against West Indies in Perth.

The 21-year-old Hughes was included in the squad after his good recent form, which included a century against Victoria in Newcastle.

"Phillip Hughes has been added to the squad of 13 players for the 3 mobile Boxing Day Test match against Pakistan.
