08. Chesney Hughes
Chesney Francis Hughes is a West Indian cricketer who plays for Derbyshire. He was born in Anguilla. Having signed for the side in June 2009, and holding a British passport, Hughes made his List A debut for the side during the 2009 Pro40 League against Warwickshire, scoring 4 runs.
In the early 2010 season Hughes started to show his talent as a young cricketer by making an exciting 41 on his first class debut against Middlesex at Lords in May 2010. Two weeks later he continued to show promise as he reached three figures for the first time in first class cricket in only his fifth innings of county cricket at the age of 19.
The rest of the 2010 season saw Hughes go on to score another century, 156 against Northamptonshire at Chesterfield, and a further three half centuries, one of them being a match winning 96* on a questionable wicket at Bristol. In total, 2010 saw Hughes amass 784 runs at an average of 41.26 in Championship cricket.
In Limited overs cricket he scored 422 runs at an average of 35.16. A very productive first full season for a man that has showed much promise for his County, Derbyshire. During the winter months of 2010/11, Hughes will be playing in the caribbean after he was selected in the Leeward Islands squad.
