Michael Hogan is set to draw the curtains on his professional cricket career as he will announce retirement at the age of 41 after Glamorgan's ongoing fixture against Sussex.

With Glamorgan currently up against Sussex, it has come down to Hogan's last game. The Newcastle-born opened up his team's wickets account by trapping Ali Orr in an LBW. Soon after, he provided another breakthrough in the form of Tom Alsop, who could be his final domestic wicket. 

Success succeeds hardships 

In a career spread across two different territories, Australia and England, Hogan has taken close to 930 wickets in his domestic career.

The pacer made his debut in domestic cricket for Western Australia in the 2009-10 Sheffield Shield when he was 28 years old. After a splendid 2009 summer, Hogan bettered his performance in 2011-12 as he ended the season as the second highest wicket-taker, claiming 46 scalps.

He made a move to England in 2013, representing Glamorgan in the domestic circuit, surrendering any possible chance to play for Australia in international cricket. However, the Australian-English cricketer played for Western Australia as an overseas player up until 2015-16.
