Age is just a number!
Brad Hogg’s dream to keep playing until he’s 50-years-old is a step closer to reality after Melbourne Renegades confirmed they’ve signed the veteran spinner for the forthcoming KFC Big Bash League season.
Hogg, who is already 46 years old is proving the world that age is just a number.
He announced himself that he will play the 4th edition of BBL: “Look out Melbourne, I’m coming back. I had such a good time during the last BBL season and the fire to compete is burning strongly.”
He also said about his desire to play till his 50th birthday: “I just want to play. I don’t care where and who wants me, as long as I’m delivering and enjoying it. I want to crack the 50 mark. If the body holds up, the body holds up. If it doesn’t, it doesn’t. If batsmen get on top of me and start belting me out of the team, so be it.”
When asked about his fitness, the 46 years old leg spinner said: “I’m fully fit, there’s nothing wrong with my endurance. It’s just being able to run at 100 per cent.”
Melbourne Renegades are also delighted to have Brad Hogg back and this is what they tweeted: “HOGGY TIME! @Brad_Hogg can’t wait to get back to @EtihadStadiumAU. Pumped to have him on board this @BBL.”
