Players and Fans are keeping themselves busy by interacting on social media and surfing their interests. Former players and stalwarts of game are also having a good time by conducting question answer sessions on twitter and other social media platforms.
Recently, Former Australian Spinner Brad Hogg was asked to name top three batsman across the formats from a fan. In an interesting reply, the former Australian Spinner has picked Indian Captain Virat Kohli, New Zealand Captain Kane Williamson and Pakistan’s young prodigy Babar Azam as top three batsman across formats.
While Virat Kohli and Kane Williamson would make to any list given their excellent record across formats. Babar Azam’s inclusion might come as a surprise for most of the cricket lovers especially when Hogg’s countryman Steven Smith going so strong across the formats.
