A member of Australia’s exciting young fast bowling cartel.
Pattinson made his test debut in 2011 after only playing 6 first class games for Victoria.
Despite the lack of first class experience Pattinson burst onto the scene with 5 wickets in the second innings as Australia beat New Zealand. This form continued into the second test and he was named man of the series after collecting 14 wickets at an average of 14.
Later that summer he collected 4-53 and 4-43 against India to really stamp himself on the international scene.
Pattinson has had success across all formats of the game, in the Indian Premier League with Kolkata Knight Riders and in the Big Bash with the Melbourne Stars and Melbourne Renegades.
Pattinson’s body though has let him down and halted his rise in the International cricket scene, he will work to build on his 13 test and 13 ODI’s for Australia over the coming years.
His skill, work rate and attitude make him a very exciting prospect and will make him one of Australia’s stars for many years to come.
