A video of Phil Hughes, who scored 86 in the second innings of the warm-up match between Australians and Worcestershire ahead of the first Ashes Test at Trent Bridge.

Hughes praised skipper Michael Clarke, who scored 124, stating that the captain's century is a good statement.

Hughes, who shared a 132-run stand with his captain, said: "I think it's a real good statement. Michael had been out of the game for three months and to play well last week then go on today to three figures is outstanding."

"He pushed the game forward and he hasn't been complaining about his back one bit, which is pleasing for him and for us as a unit."

"I thought he looked very good, he was running between the wickets well and he was swinging hard towards the end so that'll loosen his back up nicely. He's coming along really well."

Previously, the tourists knocked over the final three Worcestershire first innings wickets for 38 runs
