Melbourne:

Discarded Test batsman Phillip Hughes strengthened his push for a recall on Saturday, scoring his second century in three Sheffield Shield games.

 

The South Australia opener was dismissed for 103 on the second day of his team's match against Victoria, leg before wicket to a sharply turning delivery from leg-spinner Fawad Ahmed, who has played limited-overs cricket for Australia.

 

Hughes struck 14 boundaries in his innings, which follows a career-best 204, earlier in November against Western Australia.

 

He was passed over by selectors for the first match of the current Ashes series after playing in the opening two Tests of the Ashes in England earlier this year, scoring 81 not out, 0, 1 and 1.
