James Pattinson made his Australian debut in 2011 after just playing 6 first class games for Victoria. His five wicket haul in his first test against New Zealand was just the start of a summer of success. Later hauls of 4-53 and 4-43 against India through pace and swing contributed to Australia’s series win and has him well in the mix for the 2013 Ashes Series.
Pattinson has had success across all formats of the game with successful stints with the Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League and the Melbourne Stars and Melbourne Renegades in the Big Bash. With a Premier hundred also to his name for Dandenong CC, Pattinson’s all round game is fast developing.
