Chesney Hughes says he hopes to continue his good start to the new campaign when Glamorgan visit The 3aaa County Ground, starting on Sunday.

The opening batsman hit 96 and 137 not out versus Gloucestershire at Bristol in the county’s Specsavers County Championship opener, which ended in a draw.  Back in Derby, Hughes hopes he can kick on from his good start as Derbyshire aim to secure their first win of the season.

Hughes said: “I’m pleased with the start. I wanted to hit the ground running and do well as early as I could to set me on my way this summer.

“I’ve been out in the nineties a few times so it was pleasing to get over the line, and to be not out and bat out the day. I feel like I batted well down there and I feel like I’m lining it up nicely and I’m now looking forward to the next game.”
