After a highly successful ODI and 20/20 cricketing career with four World Cup attempts and two World Cup trophies under his belt, Brad Hogg retired from playing any form of cricket in 2008. In 2011, Hoggy shocked the nation when he made a triumphant return to professional cricket and became a major star of the inaugural Australian T20 Big Bash League with his beloved state team, the Perth Scorchers. For the past three seasons, sell-out WACA crowds have been chanting his name in unison as the now 43+ year old took wicket after wicket with his unique left-arm chinaman bowling style, mixing it up with his googly’s and wrong-uns, and fielding with the athleticism of a teenager. In 2013/14 the Perth Scorchers finally took the trophy garnered a third opportunity to compete at the T20 World Champions League in India. As a result of his comeback success in the T20 format of the game, Hoggy has played on the world circuit in Bangladesh, South Africa, India, Sir Lanka, New Zealand and around the country. The biggest compliment however was his 2012 and 2014 recall to the National team as part of the T20 World Cup squads.
