During the time of the global pandemic, former Australian spinner Brad Hogg is spending a lot of time on social media answering questions of his fans. In a recent question and answers session on Twitter, he answered several interesting questions related to cricket.
We all know that Joe Root, Kane Williamson, Steve Smith and Virat Kohli are considered as the fab four in international cricket in terms of batting. However, there is no such fab four in the bowling department. The fan asked Hogg who was your fab four bowlers in the world cricket right now.
Brad Hogg responded by picking his fab four bowlers in International Cricket. He picked Australian pacers Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins as two of the fab four. The other two whom Brag Hogg picked was Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah and New Zealand bowler Trent Boult.
The 49-year-old said that these four bowlers have the ability to pick up wickets and perform at the international level in all three formats of the game. “Cummins, Starc, Bumurah and Boult. These four are the ones who can perform at the highest level in all formats. #hoggytime”, Hogg tweeted in response to the question.

All four pacers have been performing exceptionally well for their national team. For the past few years, these bowlers have been on top of their game and helped their respective sides to several wins. South Africa’s Kagiso Rabada would have been another great choice for this category but Brad Hogg chose otherwise.
Jos Buttler picks Pat Cummins as the best bowler in the world
Earlier in the day, England wicket-keeper batsman Jos Buttler also picked one of the two Australians as his favourite bowlers. According to him, Pat Cummins is the best bowler in the longest format of the game. Well, the choice wasn’t that difficult as Cummins has been the No.1 Test bowler for quite some time.
“He is express pace, but also relentless with his accuracy. That aggression and that skill level. They were a relentless attack [Australia]. They came to England with a very clear plan for that whole series,” Buttler said while talking about Cummins.
