Warwickshire end Hogg bid
Hogg strikes against Sri Lanka
Hogg has been in excellent form
Warwickshire have ended their bid to sign Australian all-rounder Brad Hogg as their second overseas player for the 2003 English season.

The county have already recruited New Zealand paceman Shane Bond and wanted Hogg to increase their spin bowling options.

But they abandoned talks with the 32-year-old shortly after he was selected in Australia's touring party to the Caribbean.

A spokesman for Warwickshire told the BBC Sport website: "Brad has basically been dropped from our plans since being picked to go to the West Indies."

The 32-year-old, who bowls left-arm chinamen and is also a useful lower order bat, recently regained his place in the Australian one-day side after a six-year gap.

After impressing in the World Cup, he won a place in the one-day and Test squads to face the Windies next month.

The Warwickshire board will meet on Thursday to discuss the possibility of a replacement spinner.
