Hogg calls time on his career

Brad Hogg has joined the retirement epidemic sweeping Australia's mid-30s players and will step down less than a year after many rated him the world's most effective limited-overs spinner.Hogg has decided to exit at the age of 37. There are just a few personal issues that are probably the main reason for this decision he said.Hogg said his career highlights included being part of Australia's record-equalling 16 consecutive Test wins, playing in two World Cups where the team was undefeated, and "playing alongside legends" such as Adam Gilchrist and Ricky Ponting.He will have a maximum of three matches to add to his 121 games and 154 victims that make him the sixth most successful Australian bowler.He finished with 17 wickets in a career of seven Tests.Finally the left arm chinaman bids adieu to international cricket after the CB Series finals.
