Both Babar and Rahul are brilliant cricketers for their respective countries and have glory on a consistent basis.
Hogg also felt Dhoni cannot get back in the team while responding to a fan’s question. Hogg also felt that in IPL, Dhoni is playing most of the matches in spin-friendly pitches which is different from what he has to counter in Australia, he does not make it to the side over Rishabh Pant and KL Rahul.
Hogg’s response to the fan read, “Pending IPL performances, but sadly I think not, due to lack of international exposure lately & IPL he is playing the majority of games in Chennai (if it goes ahead) which is suited for spin not pace, the conditions he will get in Australia.”
Meanwhile, the coronavirus pandemic has brought the sporting world to a standstill, with most major sporting activities and events put on hold or cancelled or are taking place behind closed doors.
