Whatever the future may hold for Brad Hogg, he will definitely be able to treasure his success in the World Cup 2003.

Hogg took the opportunity offered by Shane Warne's shoulder injury to break back into the national side in 2002, taking 12 wickets in the VB Series.

His brilliant show impressed the selectors so much that he was selected for the World Cup squad as Warne's replacement.

And Warne's early exit from the World Cup allowed him to impress at the highest level.

Hogg's brand of left-arm wrist spin makes him an almost unique proposition in the international game.

And he also possesses a vicious top-spinner, which shocks batsmen with its increased pace.
