Description:
Darren John Pattinson (born August 2, 1979, Grimsby) is an English cricketer who currently plays for Victoria and Nottinghamshire.

Pattinson received considerable press coverage when he was surprisingly selected for the England cricket team in July 2008 for the 2nd Test against South Africa at Headingley. Former England captain Graham Gooch described his selection as "one of the most leftfield decisions I've ever seen".

Playing career

Pattinson, born in England, grew up in Australia and played for Dandenong Cricket Club in Victorian Premier Cricket. During the 2006–07 season, a spate of injuries to a number of bowlers resulted in Pattinson's selection for the Victorian team. In January 2007, he made his first-class debut against South Australia at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, capturing four wickets for 87 runs in the first innings. His subsequent performances during the summer earned him a contract with Victoria for 2007–08; however, he played only two first-class matches for the season. Employed as a roof-tiler, he sought to further his career as a professional cricketer by signing a two-year contract to play with Nottinghamshire in the English County Championship, commencing in 2008. Making his debut for the county against Kent on 16 April, he took five for 22 in the first innings. He followed up with a haul of 6 for 30 against Lancashire at Trent Bridge.
