Matthew Hoggard

Matthew Hoggard
Right-arm fast-medium bowler
Right-handed batsman

Born: 31 December 1976
County: Yorkshire
Test appearances: 18
Debut: v West Indies 2000

One thing is for sure, Hoggard will enjoy the conditions in Australia.

He's a big strong lad who hits the wicket when he bowls and, when allied to his movement, could get some rich reward.

He was forced to take on added responsibility when Darren Gough and Andy Caddick were sidelined, and should benefit from their return.

But if injuries continue to hamper the leading duo, Hoggard is sure to step into the spotlight and should figure prominently.
