He may have been dropped by the England and Yorkshire selectors, but Matthew Hoggard, in his new role as captain of Leicestershire, tells the Guardian that he has a lot to offer to his new county.
Coming to Leicestershire as captain gives me a clean slate. I've come here to do a job which I'm more than capable of doing. I'm going to prove that to myself and my team and become a good leader. The key will be to judge the situation right. Is it time for me to put a hand around their shoulders or give them a rocket up the arse? I need to get that right but I'll still tell the truth. I'll call a shovel a shovel and a pick a pick.
