He has so many cricket stories and knows how to tell a great yarn which had everyone glued to their seats.  He is very open about his experiences in his journey through life.

Brad Hogg's Biography

From his humble beginnings raised as an only child on a remote sheep farm in Williams, WA – this story is about a boy with a dream, the man who achieved it, lost it, then found the courage at an impossible age to stand amongst the worlds best again.

 

After a highly successful ODI cricketing career with three World Cup attempts and two World Cup trophies under his belt, Brad Hogg retired from playing any form of cricket in 2008.

 

In 2011, Hoggy shocked the nation when he made a triumphant return to professional cricket and became a major star of the inaugural T20 Big Bash League with his beloved state team, the Perth Scorchers. Packed WACA audiences chanted his name as the 41 year old took wicket after wicket with his unique left-arm chinaman bowling style, mixing it up with his googly’s and wrong-uns, much to the delight of the crowd. 

 

Since then, he has been one of the most desired players on the world circuit and has performed in several international T20 League competitions including Bangladesh, South Africa, India, The Caribbean and Sri Lanka.

 

Packed audiences filled the Sydney Olympic Park Stadium and MCG as Hoggy made his 2012 appearance in the Australia VS India T20 series in March 2012, and again in Dubai for Australia VS Pakistan T20's in September, and finally, his squad pick to play in the Australian World Cup T20 team where they were eliminated in the Semi-Finals by the West Indies ... what a year!

 

His luck continued, when the Perth Scorchers won the rights to host the KFC T20 Big Bash League finals at the WACA three years in a row since the inaugural match, finally winning the Trophy in 2013/14 and backing it up with another win in 2014/15.   As a result, Hogg was once again called up for national duty and joined the Australian T20 team in South Africa for a few matches prior to the T20 World Cup in Bangladesh.  What a comeback!

 

His 2014 Perth Scorchers signup featured in a tongue-in-cheek parody of a music video, which went viral across the nation and featured on every states news/sports headlines. Unfortunately, the 'Three-peat' campaign of the Perth Scorchers to win three consecutive Titles was not to be, and Hoggy said farewell after five strong years with the Scorchers to allow the young fellas their day in the sun, and to chase once in a lifetime opportunities for a sixth BBL with The Melbourne Renegades in 2016/7.


Hogg continues to defy the odds, where, at 45+ years of age, he was picked up at auction by The Kolkata Knight Riders in the 2015 and 2016 Indian Premier League (IPL) and proved age is no barrier to his success.

 

As a public/corporate speaker - Brad takes you on a journey of his highs and lows, the people famous (and not so famous) that inspired him along the way, the struggles to stay focussed and believe in the dream when he wasn't being picked to play year after year, self belief in practice, facing fears, good leadership examples, teamwork, what the baggy green means to him and our country, how he deals with nerves, why preparation is critical to success, the hard work behind and between the scenes, change room pranks and anecdotal tour stories,  and much more ....

 

Brad is a natural performer, and his enthusiasm spills over onto the stage with an energy that is palpable, and an honesty that is endearing as he owns his mistakes and is humbled by his successes. Off field, Hoggy is a notorious prankster and on field, a smiling assassin – so there’s a carpet bag full of stories to share about the old days and the new. 

 

A popular media personality, Hogg is a regular on radio across the country including Mix 94.5FM, 96FM, ABC, 6PR, MMM, EON Digital Radio, SEN Radio and many others. Between his game commitments, Brad loves to commentate and can often be heard and seen on STAR Sports, IPL, ABC and others.

 

His active charitable ambassadorships are extensive - including Police Legacy, SDERA (Public Schools Drug Education and Road Safety Awareness), Starlight Foundation, A Stitch In Time, Duchenne Foundation, Homeless Connect, Farming Champions, Make A Wish Foundation and many more. Brad’s keen sense of community spirit is tantamount to the character of the man.
