Dubai [UAE], Nov 12 : Australian speedster James Pattinson has expressed his desire to play back-to-back games in Test cricket soon.
Pattinson had suffered several injuries in the past. The right-arm bowler was sidelined midway through the 2013 and 2015 Ashes due to back injuries.
The Australia team adopted a workload management policy with him during the 2019 Ashes and didn’t allow him to play consecutive games.
“To rock up, have four days off and bowl again – I was like, ‘what’s this all about?’ It’s things like that where you pinch yourself and go, ‘this is good, things are starting to line up a little bit’. Still not being 30 yet, I’ve still got a lot of cricket left,” ICC quoted Pattinson as saying.
“The next process for me now, if I do get the chance in the Test arena, is to play more back-to-back cricket,” he added.
Australia and Pakistan will lock horns in a two-match Test series, starting from November 21.
