James Pattinson to return to Nottinghamshire for 2022

Nottinghamshire UK January 15 ANI Former Australia pacer James Pattinson is set to make a third stint with Nottinghamshire after signing an all-format deal covering the 2022 season.

Pattinson previously spent parts of the 2017 and 2019 seasons with the county, taking 40 First-Class wickets at 15.52.

The right-arm fast bowler announced his retirement from international cricket in October 2021, having played 21 Tests and 19 White-ball internationals for his country.

In 2013, his 81 Test wickets at 26.33 apiece included five in a thrilling Ashes encounter at Trent Bridge.

The moment I stepped through the gates, the Trent Bridge felt like home. Pattinson said to be looking forward to getting back amongst them again and that to arrive here and be met by a group of guys that made me so welcome from minute dot was pretty special.

The bowling group did some special things last season. He said that he hopes to add something to that and help the club enjoy some success in the coming years.

Pattinson was the first to join the Green and Golds at the start of their 2017 season, taking 32 wickets at 12.06 with the red ball.

He scored a career-best 89 against Leicestershire on his debut against Grace Road, adding 122 for the eighth wicket with Stuart Broad, as well as claiming 8 - 84 match figures.
