It's been more than five years since Brad Hodge played for Australia. But at 38, his hunger and passion for the game haven't diminished. With opportunities to represent the national side few and far between, Hodge turned to playing in leagues across India, Bangladesh, England and New Zealand. Among the various teams he's played for, his role at Rajasthan Royals has been well defined and has brought him a lot of success.
Hodge, who has the ability to mould his game to every situation, attributed his hitting ability to the baseball training he underwent during his formative years. "I used to play baseball as a young kid and Twenty20 is a bit similar to baseball where you whack and try and get a couple of home runs, and enjoy yourself because that's what it's all about," Hodge told CLT20.com.
