“There was one time with Rajasthan Royals. We were in Mumbai and we went through the match-fixing saga. I’m not going to mention the players but we got on the bus after playing Mumbai. The next morning to go to Hyderabad. 3-to 4 players were not on that bus, they’d been arrested. We got to Hyderabad and there were cameras everywhere. And we just wanted to get out of the bus and go to our rooms,” Hogg said.
“Then coach called us down to sit around the pool and discuss the situation and asked how everyone was feeling. Then the questions went around and when it came to Pravin he just broke down in tears. The opportunity of playing at the highest level on TV had just been tarnished by the actions of three other players. And that little emotional speech his answer all turned everyone to say that we’ve got to keep going. And we still go it to play for Rajasthan Royals,” Hogg added.
Talking about Tambe’s numbers in IPL, the 50-year-old has played 33 matches in which he had scalped 28 wickets at an average of 30.46. He was quite economical as well bowling at an economy of 7.75. Tambe represented several franchises in IPL including RR, Gujarat Lions, and Sunrisers Hyderabad.
