An academy product of Derbyshire, Hughes garnered praise for his attacking approach and was also praised for his captaincy when he captained the side in 9 limited over matches in the absence of the regular skipper, West Durston.
He made his Derbyshire senior debut in a T20 game against Yorkshire in 2011.
Two years later, he went on to make his first-class debut for Derbyshire against Sussex at Hove.
In 2016, Hughes went on to score his maiden first-class ton against Gloucestershire, registering an unbeaten 140 on a typical green-top wicket.
