Talking about the missing out players in his current best ODI XI, Hogg said, “The two unlucky batsmen are Aaron Finch, who had a wonderful year in 2019. But his conversion rate wasn’t as good as everyone else in that top four.
“The other one was Kane Williamson, nearly got in front of Virat Kohli. Because he had a better average. But it was only a lower strike rate that kept him out of the side.”
“I could have chosen Trent Boult and Pat Cummins, who is a lot more economical than the bowlers who I have chosen, but they don’t have strong strike rates.” Brad Hogg added.
