Brad Hogg names top 3 batsmen in all formats

Posted On

Former Australian cricketer Brad Hogg, who was known for his chinaman bowling in the cricketing world, is now famous for interacting with his fans on social media. He often runs Q/A sessions on microblogging website Twitter and answers to the queries posted by his followers.


Since the world is facing coronavirus pandemic, these sessions run by Hogg is really helping the fans to stay connected towards the game.

On Friday, Hogg yet again interacted with his fans and responded to their questions.


A fan asked Hogg to name top 3 batsmen in all formats.

Former Aussie responded to the question and took the names of India captain Virat Kohli, Pakistan’s young sensation Babar Azam, and New Zealand’s skipper Kane Williamson.

Kohli and Williamson are already a part of fab four – a list consists of four best batsmen of modern cricket, i.e., Kohli, Steve Smith, Williamson, and Joe Root – while Babar is the next contender to be featured in this kind of a list.


Kohli has accumulated 21,901 international runs in his career. He’s the third Indian player to have that many runs under his pocket after Sachin Tendulkar (34,357) and Rahul Dravid (24,064).

Williamson, on the other hand, has scored 14,314 runs. While Babar has 6680 international runs to his name.

Another fan dropped a question to pick a better fielder between veteran Pakistani player Shoaib Malik and power-striker from Australia, Glenn Maxwell.


“@Brad_Hogg who better Glenn Maxwell or Shoaib Malik?” the fan wrote.

Hogg replied to the tweet and picked his countryman Maxwell. He said, Maxwell’s fielding is better than Malik, and that’s what gets him over the line.
