The ‘Can’t Bowl Can’t Throw’ podcast turns ONE today and Brad Hogg joins us to celebrate.
Left-arm chinaman bowler, capable lower-order left-handed batsman and an excellent fielder.
He is Australia’s sixth most successful One Day International bowler and second most successful spinner in terms of wickets taken.
He was a member of Australia’s victorious 2003 and 2007 Cricket World Cup teams and is one of only 15 players to have won the Cup more than once.
Many thanks to those of you that sent in questions for him. Cat Jones and I threw the best XI of those questions at him. As expected, Hoggy didn’t back down from any of them.
Our discussions included topics such as:
– That tongue
– What it is like playing in 2 winning World Cup sides
– Why are Chinamen bowlers so rare?
– Why Mark Taylor was a better captain than Steve Waugh
– His thoughts on chucking
– Was he drunk when he did that rap for the ‘Scorchers’?
Hoggy also had four nominations to choose from for the Muller Award this week.
Brad alludes to the fact that it may not have been Warney or Joe the Cameraman who sledged poor Scott Muller out of the game, but someone else. Who was it?
A Bonus blooper reel can be heard at the end if you like that kind of thing.
Check out Hoggy’s website here. It’s a bloody ripper.
