Profile

James Pattinson is a member of the young fast bowling fraternity that is taking over Australian cricket. With raw pace and controlled out swing, he has become a valued member of the Australian set-up, especially in the Test arena.

A solid domestic career, including a Victoria best 6/48 against NSW earned Pattinson a surprise call up to the national squad for the home series against New Zealand.

A quiet first innings with the ball was soon forgotten when the fiery quick tore through the Kiwi top order, taking the first five wickets of the innings. His 5/27 earned him Man of the Match honours.

He took another five-for in the next game, and finished the two test series with an impressive 14 wickets at an average of just 14.

Pattinson continued his meteoric rise at his home town Test against India in the Boxing Day match at the MCG. 4/53 against the star studded Indians was backed up by another haul of four wickets at the second Test in Sydney.

An impressive showing in the first Test against South Africa confirmed his credentials as one of the world’s best quicks.

He picked up the big three of Graeme Smith, Jacques Kallis and AB de Villiers in the first, before removing both openers in the second innings.

Pattinson claimed 5/96 in Chennai in a spell that will probably go unnoticed. But when you consider the difficulties faced by Australia that series, it probably rates as one of his best.

The tearaway has already proven that he is no mug with the bat, and enjoys a Test average of just under 30.

Australian selectors will be hoping the Dandenong junior can stay injury free ahead of the ten Test marathon against England.
