Hogg to invoke Hillary's spirit in defence

New Delhi: Sir Edmund Hillary's most famous quote is set to form part of the Australian cricket team's defence of Brad Hogg's racial abuse charge later on Monday.

Sir Hillary is reported to have jubilantly said once: "We knocked the b*****d off".

He said this after conquering Mount Everest in 1953.

HOGGING THE LIMELIGHT: If found guilty, Hogg faces a ban of between two and four Tests.

This statement is expected to be used by Hogg's defence team as an example of why the word isn't always intended in an abusive manner.

If found guilty, Hogg faces a ban of between two and four Tests. Cricket Australia legal affairs manager Dean Kino has been in charge of Hogg's case.
