He is primarily a left arm chinaman bowler, although he is a handy left-handed batsman as well and is an excellent fielder.

Hogg originates from Western Australia, where he has been a member of the State team since 1994. He originally entered the lineup as a batsman, but has since developed his bowling skills. He has a good googly and a well-disguised flipper, which he used to bowl Andy Flower, who was then considered to be one of the world's best at playing spin bowling, during the 2003 World Cup. In his book, Walking to Victory, Adam Gilchrist described it as 'one of the balls of the tournament.'

In 1996, he joined the Australian team to tour India to replace Warne (who was injured). He made his Test debut against India in Delhi, taking 1/69 and making 1 and 4. He also played seven one-day international matches. However, the belief at the time was that he was merely a place-holder for Warne, and he was discarded from international calculations for some time. Hogg was also in and out of the Western Australian squad for the next few years as he struggled to come to terms with unsympathetic pitches and poor returns with the ball.

Hogg was absent from the international scene until called up to replace Warne during the 2002/2003 VB Series (an annual tri-nations one day tournament in Australia) after Warne injured his shoulder, and the 2003 World Cup. However, Warne first dislocated his shoulder in a VB Series match, and then positive to a banned diuretic in a pre-World Cup drugs test (taken following his shoulder injury), leaving Hogg to play as Australia's specialist spinner in both series and has filled that role since, due to Warne's retirement from the one day game.

Hogg was recalled to the Australian Test team to tour the West Indies in April 2003, where he played two matches (making his wait between his first and second Tests the longest for an Australian). He also played against Zimbabwe at the SCG later that year, but was upstaged by part-time chinaman bowler Simon Katich, who took 6/90 for the match (Hogg took 3/119). He was left out of the Test team in 2004 but remains in the national one day team as the preferred spinner to Stuart MacGill. He appears to be becoming a one-day only player with Western Australian selectors preferring to play young spinner Beau Casson ahead of Hogg in the state's Pura Cup side.

Spitting on Diamonds by Clyde Hogg (985 words)
Hogg played during a time known as the dead ball era, when a pitcher could spit on, shine up, or even roughen a ball to secure an advantage over a hitter.
The author shows how Hogg's career is representative of the thousands of men who have played professional baseball since its inception more than 125 years ago, men who didn't make it into the Hall of Fame or win awards but made it possible for millions of fans to enjoy the game.
After baseball, Brad Hogg became a successful lawyer in Americus, Georgia, but ran into an unconquerable obstacle in 1932 when he drank water from a common dipper at the town well in Americus, contracting tuberculosis which killed him in 1935.
The Telegraph - Calcutta (501 words)
Hogg also added that it is a mutual learning process between him, Stuart MacGill and Warne.
Hogg is also relishing the prospect of bowling to Sourav Ganguly, who is known to be one of the best players of left-arm spin.
In fact, it was Hogg who denied Sourav the record of scoring three centuries in his first three Tests, dismissing the Indian captain for 66 in New Delhi in 1996.
