Bio

A member of Australia’s young fast-bowling cartel, Pattinson was rewarded for some impressive showings in domestic cricket with a Test debut against New Zealand in 2011.

He repaid the faith of selectors with a blistering spell in the second innings that yielded figures of 5-27 and man-of-the-match honours, before he picked up another five-wicket haul in the second Test.

He followed it up with two hauls of four wickets against India, before the first of several chronic injuries stalled his momentum.

His figures of 5-96 on an unresponsive Chennai pitch in 2013 were unfortunately overlooked in the wake of Australia’s heavy defeat, but it highlighted Pattinson’s skill, work rate and courage.

If he can get his body fit, Pattinson could be a star of Australian cricket for several years to come.
