Hampshire have announced the signing of Australian left-handed batsman Phillip Hughes for the remainder of the County Championship season.

Hughes, who missed Australia's recent tour of England with a dislocated shoulder, will be attempting to play himself into form ahead of the Ashes and Australia's tour of India as he begins his comeback from the injury.

He enjoyed a profitable spell with Middlesex in 2009 before being dropped following a string of low scores in the 2009 Ashes series but worked his way back into the team in the Australian summer.
