The coronavirus pandemic has disrupted normalcy and brought the world to a halt. Major sports tournaments have been cancelled which includes the much-anticipated 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020). Many cricketers are taking this time off to interact with their fans on twitter.
Former Australia spinner Brad Hogg is one cricketer who has been extremely active on social media. Brad Hogg has been speaking on several topics such as MS Dhoni's future, the IPL 2020 getting cancelled, the top 3 batsmen in the world in powerplays and so on. Brad Hogg has candidly responded to fans' queries.
On Sunday, Brad Hogg was asked by a fan about his choice as the skipper of the team having the best ODI players in the world at the moment. Brad Hogg's answer came as a surprise to many as he went on to pick New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson as the skipper of his World XI. The Kane Williamson-led New Zealand side to the final of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, only to lose to England in a thrilling match which went right down to the Super Over.
However, many fans were left surprised with Kane Williamson being Brad Hogg's choice as the skipper of his World XI. Hogg was questioned about leaving out Virat Kohli and Eoin Morgan. Virat Kohli has a win percentage of 71.83% and Eoin Morgan led England to World Cup 2019 glory.
Kane Williamson, however, has also been prolific with his captaincy. Kane Williamson has a win percentage of 55.33%, having won 41 matches and lost 33 as skipper of the Kiwis. Under Kane Williamson’s captaincy, New Zealand also reached the semi-final of the T20 World Cup in 2016.
