Hogg set to sign new KKR contract

Perth, Jan 29 (IANS) Chinaman bowler Brad Hogg, who will turn 44 next week, is set to sign a contract with Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) for the next Indian Premier League (IPL) season.

The Australian Thursday said he has had a word with KKR head coach Trevor Bayliss who told him that the team is looking forward to working with him.
“I was talking to Trevor Bayliss. They’re looking to get me over there. It looks like I’m going to the IPL as well. Hopefully, I get another season or two in the Big Bash League (BBL) here with the Perth Scorchers,” Hogg was quoted as saying by foxsports.com.au.
On retirement he said: “There’s no reason at all. As a bowling group with the Perth Scorchers it’s been fantastic this year, I’ve been really enjoying it all so I don’t have any thoughts about retiring.”
Hogg has previously played for the Rajasthan Royals in the IPL and has taken 10 wickets from the same number of matches at an average of 28.40.
