Simon Hughes

Simon Hughes is a former Middlesex, Durham and England fast bowler who now works as a sports journalist for The Daily Telegraph and Channel 5, and is Boss's representative at the World Cup in the Caribbean.

Hughes's first book, A Lot of Hard Yakka, was a resounding success (Sports Book of the Year 1997), following it with Yakking Around the World and, in 2005, Morning Everyone: An Ashes Odyssey. His analytical prowess brought him further notoriety in his role as "The Analyst" during Channel 4's coverage in England.

In similar fashion, he will be analysing England's matches in the Super Eights of the World Cup here for Cricinfo.

Simon Hughes is a former Middlesex, Durham and England fast bowler who now works as a sports journalist for The Daily Telegraph and Channel 5, and is Boss's representative at the World Cup in the Caribbean.

He is well known for his work as "The Analyst" on Channel 4's cricket coverage (from 1999, where he spent matches in a VT trailer, watching replays and drawing viewers' attention to particular details.) And it is this talent for spotting detail that makes him perfect as Boss' man at the World Cup.
