Kyle William Hogg is a professional English cricketer. He plays for Lancashire County Cricket Club since 2001. Born on 2nd July 1983 in Birmingham, Kyle is a right-arm medium-fast bowler, having the potential to bat well when needed. His grandfather Sonny Ramadhin and father Willie Hogg were both cricketers.
Kyle Hogg started his first class career in 2001. At that time, there were some chances for him to be included in the full squad of England. However, it was his team-mate James Anderson who was chosen for the English squad in 2002-03. In spite of getting an academy place in the 2002 winters, he missed the England radar, as a result of the number of injuries he picked up in the last three seasons.
During the English close season, Kyle was signed by Otago, a New Zealand State side in October 2006. He played for the Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club and the Worcestershire County Cricket Club in 2007 on loan basis.
In 2010, Kyle made 88 runs against Yorkshire, his highest score in batting. In August 2010, he got his County cap and the next month he scored a half century picking up 4 wickets for 53 runs, his best for the season.
In early 2011, Kyle Hogg sustained a muscle tear injury during a warm up match and later again in May he sustained another injury when he twisted his ankle.
Hogg’s best bowling performance in first-class matches are 7 wickets for 28 runs against Hampshire. While batting, his highest score so far has been 88 runs Yorkshire.
