• Victorian quick James Pattinson confident despite being rested

    James Pattinson is confident he will play all remaining Sheffield Shield games despite being rested on Cricket Australia’s advice for this week’s game against New South Wales.

    Pattinson said he was the only quick bowler to bowl all of his allotted 10 overs in each Matador Cup game this summer and then backed that up with a Sheffield Shield match.

    Pattinson and high-performance manager Tim McCaskill said it was part of the deliberate and painstaking rehabilitation program, since Pattinson’s second back stress fracture, that his load be carefully managed.

    “It was always part of the plan for me to miss this one,” Pattinson said.

    “Coming back into cricket I had a good run of eight Matador Cup matches – and I was the only fast bowler to bowl 10 overs in each game – and then straight into the shield so it was always the plan to miss the second one.

    “I would have loved to play but Cricket Australia felt it was best to manage the load. Looking big picture it is the right thing to do, we have three Shield games after this and I will be clear to play those.”

    Victorian chairman of selectors Andrew Lynch said it was important to manage Pattinson carefully and so he will miss the NSW game starting in Sydney on Friday. Pattinson will be back for the Shield match from November 14 against WA at the MCG.

    “James’ bowling workloads are at a level that require him to rest from this match,” Lynch said.

    Pattinson revealed his reconstructed bowling action has lost none of its venom with a sharp spell in the second innings of the Shield win over Queensland last week in which he knocked over Test recalls Joe Burns and Usman Khawaja.

    “He was bowling the absolute house down,” said teammate Peter Handscomb. “He was bowling fast, he was swinging it and it was awesome to see.

    “It’s just something where we want to make sure he gets through the entire season for us first. Then by getting through the season, it puts his hand up to play for Australia.”

    Last month Victorian coach David Saker said national selectors would be mad to rush Pattinson back into the Test side and urged caution. The Australian sport science team has evidently done that by having the quick bowler rested for this game.

    “If he can get through two or three Shield games, two things will happen; he will be confident in his body, plus his action will be a bit more grooved and he probably will be ready by then,” Saker said.

    Australian coach Darren Lehmann rebuked Saker at the time for his comments saying the Victorian coach should worry about the Victorian team.

    “We won’t rush him back in if he’s not right. He’s got to be ready to play,” Lehmann said.
