His earlier international career was revitalised by Shane Warne's absence from cricket in 2003 due to suspension from a drugs test and subsequent retirement from one-day cricket. He is Australia's ninth most successful One Day International bowler and second most successful spinner in terms of wickets taken. He was a member of Australia's victorious 2003 and 2007 Cricket World Cup teams. He retired from International cricket on 4 March 2008 after the 2007–08 Commonwealth Bank Series.
In a surprise comeback to the T20 format at the inaugural Big Bash League in 2011, Hogg became a cult hero of the short form, bringing about a call-up to the 2012 and 2014 T20 World Cup Australia sides, as well as international T20 contracts around the world. Hogg is the world's current oldest top level cricket player, and the only player over 40 years of age to take 100 wickets in the T20 format.
Hogg released The Wrong'Un, an autobiography with Greg Growden, in November 2016 and enjoys a career as a cricket commentator and has become a popular media personality between cricket commitments.
