The cricket team of England Hoggard, who stands 6' 2", is a right-arm fast-medium bowler and right-handed batter. From 2000 until 2008, he was a member of the England cricket squad, playing both Test and One-Day International cricket. He is the current Leicestershire captain, a role he has held since 2010. He played his first match in 2000, and as of 2013 had taken 102 wickets at an average of 31.88.
Hoggard made his Test debut against South Africa at The Oval on August 5, 2000. He took five wickets in the match, which England lost by an innings and 51 runs. The following season, he played in all three Tests against India, taking ten wickets at an average of 20.0. After this successful start to his international career, however, Hoggard failed to reproduce his form from the previous year, taking just four wickets in two matches played in 2001. In 2002, he played in one Test against Australia at Old Trafford, where he took three wickets. Hoggard's last appearance for England came in 2008, when he played in two Twenty20s against Pakistan. At the age of 32, he was selected to tour Bangladesh with a World XI team but had to withdraw due to injury. Upon his return to Leicester, he announced that he would be leaving English cricket to focus on Leicestershire.

Hoggy's Grill will put his grilling abilities to the test at Rutland Water's new purpose-built culinary school. The former captain will also be a mentor to some of the students.
Hoggard won five matches during England's 5-0 victory over Australia in the fifth and final Test match at the Oval Cricket Ground, London. He became the first man to win the Ashes while wearing number four gloves (Boonie Wells wore this number in 1930-31). After retiring from cricket, Hoggard went on to take up coaching and has been involved with the game since then. He has worked with England's youth teams and has been director of cricket at Bedfordshire County Cricket Club since 2009.
He said: "I'm really looking forward to working with everyone at the school. I have always loved cooking and watching sports cars so this should be fun! As well as helping out with the teaching side of things, I will be putting the students through their paces by preparing and eating some of my favorite meals."
Hoggard retired from professional cricket in 2005 after playing his last match against New Zealand. He ended his career with a bang by scoring a century on his debut appearance, coming in time for the closing ceremony of the 2005 ICC Cricket World Cup.
Hoggard scored 8 not out with Ashley Giles against Australia in the fourth Test at Trent Bridge in the 2005 Ashes series, including a well-executed cover drive for four off a Brett Lee full toss, as England triumphed by three wickets, reaching 129 to take a 2-1 series lead. This was his only century in 205 one-day internationals.
He was dropped after this match and missed the last two games of the series. When he returned for the final match, England had been beaten 3-0 and Hoggard was dismissed for a duck early on in the first innings. However, Michael Vaughan's men managed to recover through some gritty batting and win the match by eight runs. This proved to be enough to save the series as Australia lost its second consecutive 5-nil series.
Hoggard's knock came just before lunch on Day Four and he reached 100 off 185 balls with nine fours and a singleton. He stayed put until he was dismissed by Lee for 101 off 183 balls with nine fours and a six. His knock included five boundaries and a massive six off Andrew Symonds which brought up the historic moment. He ended up scoring at a rate of nearly one run per ball and helped his side reach their target with seven balls to spare. This is the fastest century ever achieved in an innings where the score was below 200.
