In the sport of
cricket, a slogger refers to a batsmanwho 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.
