A wily medium-pacer and a handy lower-order batsman, Dane Paterson is a South African-born professional cricketer who is known to swing the ball both ways, an attribute deemed particularly suitable to bowling in English conditions.
Dane started his cricketing journey playing age-group cricket for the Western Province and made his first senior appearance in March 2009 in a List A fixture against Kwazulu Natal. Paterson’s first senior appearance for his country came in T20 cricket, as South Africa welcomed Sri Lanka to Cape Town in January 2017. Paterson has appeared for the Proteas in two Test matches up till now, both against England.
Since making his professional debut 12 years ago, Paterson has established himself as a consistent threat with both the red and white ball and has garnered over 550 wickets across all formats.
The South African seamer signed as an overseas Kolpak player to represent Nottinghamshire across all formats at the start of the 2021 season. His consistency and skills adds quality and experience to the Notts squad and his attributes to swing the ball both ways will be widely appreciated in County Cricket.
