Aging 46 years, Hogg hopes to have a return in international cricket!
At the age of 46 years, Australian china man bowler Brad Hogg stated proudly he ‘isn’t done yet’ and even hoping for yet another comeback in the Australian side.
Some three months after, he will turn 47, but Hogg said the thought of retiring from international cricket has not yet crossed his mind.
“I am not worried about my age mate. I am still trying to play First-Class cricket for Western Australia. I don’t think I will ever announce my retirement from international cricket because it is a privilege to play for your country and if I am doing well enough I would never say no,” that was all Hogg said while talking to Press Trust of India by the time he worked as a commentator in the one day series between India and Australia.
Brad Hogg last played for Australia in the year of 2014 when he was 44 year old and believes he is still capable of bowling in the highest level of the game.
“If I get the opportunity to play again (for Australia), I would take it. Because once you are long time retired (it is difficult to comeback). If it stops now, it stops now, I know I won’t get to play again. I am fortunate that at my age I am still wanted. Whether it happens or not, it is another matter but yeah I am not done yet,” he said.
A surgery in the left knee threw Hogg out of the competitive cricket back in 2015.
