Veteran Brad Hogg still enjoying his life in the IPL

EVERGREEN West Australian spinner Brad Hogg has become the oldest cricketer to play in the Indian Premier League, turning out for the Kolkata Knight Riders in Chennai at 44 years and 81 days.

The left-arm chinaman bowler took the record from Indian spinner Pravin Tambe, who is still playing in the IPL with the Rajastan Royals at 43.

Hogg took 1-18 from his four overs, helping restrict the Super Kings to 6-134. The Knight Riders could manage only 9-132 in reply.

The veteran (pictured) said it was "amazing" to be back playing in the IPL, adding he was also enjoying the chance to "get involved in the culture and see what India is all about.

"I'm just fortunate to be still playing at my age. I've had a stop-start career and it has been a bit of a fairytale to still keep going," Hogg said. "My teammates at KKR are a great bunch of blokes and I am enjoying being a part of it all."
