Veteran Australian off-spinner Brad Hogg has admitted that he did not even know what a 'wrong-un' was when he made his first-class debut in 1994.

Hogg's wrong-un delivery is one of the hardest balls to pick in cricket as it befuddled and bagged seasoned performers such as Andrew Flintoff, Herschelle Gibbs and Mahela Jayawardene.

According to, Hogg, who played his first game for Western Australia as a middle-order batsman and only started bowling left-arm 'chinaman' spin in the nets, said that he had no idea what a wrong-un was when former Test leg-spinner and then WA manager Tony Mann told him to send a few such deliveries to teammate Damien Martyn.

Stating that he felt like Mann was talking in a foreign language, Hogg further revealed that after both wrong-uns he sent landed outside edge, Mann advised him to stick with chinaman bowling.

At the age of 43, and more than two decades years older than leg-spin teammate James Muirhead, Hogg has become the feel-good story of Australia's Twenty20 World Cup campaign in Bangladesh, the report added.
