Australia’s former spinner Brad Hogg is quite active on Twitter. Hogg is known for not shying away from expressing his opinion on the micro-blogging website. At present, the whole world is battling against COVID-19 and all sporting activities have been put to a halt. During these trying times, many cricketers including Hogg have conducted Twitter Q&A sessions to dish out some entertainment.
Hogg has conducted many Q&A sessions on his Twitter where the spinner has revealed his preferences. Hogg has built many all-time squads and he has also picked his favourite players on social media. Hogg, on Friday, while responding to a tweet, revealed that he is biased to left-arm bowlers when he was asked to name his favourite Pakistan fast bowlers.
Furthermore, Hogg revealed the names of Shaheen Shah Afridi and the legendary Wasim Akram as his current and all-time best Pakistan bowlers respectively. Hogg also spilt the beans on his preferred right-arm fast bowlers as he picked Naseem Shah as his current and Waqar Younis as his all-time best Pakistan bowler.
“Shaheen Afridi today. Wasim Akram in the past. I’m bias to left arm bowlers. Naseem Shah and Waqar Younis for the Right arm bowlers,” wrote Hogg while responding to the question on #askhoggy.
