He was born in England, came over at the age of 5. Has a highly rated younger brother, who has played Aus U/19, who was born in Australia.
Pattinson was a bit of a late developer. Bowled a couple of seasons of real heat in grade cricket, and when a few quicks fell down for Victoria he filled in very well. Always does a good job when he plays for Victoria, probably the fact that he wasn't "anointed" from a young age means that they play a few others in front of him. Has also struggled with an ankle injury for the past season or two. Hits the deck hard and gets some away swing at times, pushes it up around 140.
