George Bradley Hogg Profile

The profligacy of 'Docker' remains as a rare chinaman in the Australian ranks after over 80 years. Brad Hogg moved on from a postman to trail in Shane Warne's mercurial path to become Australia's top spinner.

Drafted in the 2003 ICC Cricket World Cup squad after the flagitious exit of Warne who was banned, Hogg went on to scalp 13 wickets in the tournament with a three-wicket haul against Pakistan in his first World Cup match. Known for his sheepish grin and a yappy face all the time, Hogg had flummoxed many a batsman with his flipper, the one that hisses through quickly.

Also nicknamed 'George', he cliched Stuart Macgill to remain in the prolific Shane Warne's shadow throughout his cricketing life. Hogg did manage to pluck some strings with a defining 21 wickets in the Caribbean World Cup, but could not capitalize further after the bashing he received at the hands of the batsmen on the India tour. That eventually paved way for his retirement from international cricket by the end of 2007-08, much to the dismay of a few legitimate followers.

Hogg made a sensational comeback to the T20I circuit after a gap of five years, as he was romped into the Australia squad to face India at home after stupendous performances in the Big Bash League of 2011-12. In the fifth edition of the IPL, he was picked up by the Rajasthan Royals and a Perth Scorchers sign up followed for the Champions LeagueT20. At 41, he became the oldest Australian cricketer to have been named in a World Cup squad after he was picked for the 2012 ICC World Twenty20.
