Slogger


Slogger

In the sport of cricket, a slogger refers to a batsman who plays with an attacking mindset with the intention of scoring runs on almost, if not every, delivery.

Sloggers are known for their big hitting and high strike rates, however they sometimes lack the technique of higher-class batsmen and therefore often go out for low scores through their excessive attacking.
