But the left-hander hopes his flexibility in Australia's batting order will save him from being dropped for next week’s third Test.
Back in his old opening spot on Friday, Hughes recovered from a scratchy start to post 84 in the tour match against Sussex. “I don’t mind where I bat but when you do move from one to six, mentally it can be frustrating,” Hughes said.
“At times it can be tough to get your head around the different positions but you’ve just got to get on with it. It was different going out opening. I’m very comfortable opening the batting.”
