Michael Hogan, the Western Australia fast bowler, will quit Australian cricket after one more season in order to take up a contract with Glamorgan which had been due to start later this year.

Hogan, 30, was due to link up with Glamorgan for the last two months of the 2012 English season but will now see out his Warriors contract before switching. Hogan holds a British passport so will not be classed as an overseas player, but regulations mean he has to stop playing Australian domestic cricket.

"He has recently announced that he will retire from playing cricket in Australia at the end of March 2013," a Glamorgan statement said. "He will then join up with his new team-mates ahead of the start of the new season and will play for Glamorgan for a minimum of two seasons."

Hogan has played 27 first-class matches and taken 100 wickets at 28.46 with a best of 6 for 70.

@Chris Mack - I was/is a big fan of Jaques but for 3 or 4 years after his back surgery, he hardly averaged over 30 in Shield & County cricket, although I think he is currently doing well in County.

this is terrible for WA but if ryan duffield is fit that will be fine. hogan would walk into the england side so maybe thats why he is doing it.

@Chris Sun - got absolutely nothing to do with playing for England. The money is better in County cricket & you often get to play well after your use-by date. @Jo McGahan - LOL!

Another Australian domestic player defects to England after Phil Jacques. What else are we going to see? Young Aussies leaving Australia at 18 so they can play county cricket for 7 years and be eligible for England selection at 25? The England team is hard to break into unless you are exceptionally talented.

Interesting to see how he goes over there. Despite good stats, he never really looked close to getting higher honours.

That's a bit of a blow for WA, least they have time to look for replacements. Always rated Hogan as a bowler and he should do well in UK conditions. He wouldn't let anyone down either if he played at the highest level in Australia either.
