Pattinson Will Miss First Test Against Pakistan

The pacer will not play in Australia’s first Test versus Pakistan after receiving a one-match ban from Cricket Australia.

James Pattinson will not be available for the team in their first Test against Pakistan at Brisbane after being banned for a single match. He violated Cricket Australia’s code of conduct in his recent match.

He made a level two breach of Article 2.1.3 of Cricket Australia’s code of conduct for personal abuse of a player. On-field umpires John Ward and Shawn Craig laid the charge on the pacer during Victoria’s Sheffield Shield game versus Queensland

He was previously found guilty of two level-one code of conduct breaches last year, including his dissent towards the umpire’s call in the game against South Australia.

‘I made a mistake in the heat of the moment. Straight away I realised I was in the wrong, and I apologised immediately, both to the opponent and to the umpires’, said the Australian pacer. ‘I have done the wrong thing and accept the penalty. I'm gutted to miss a Test match, but the standards are there for a reason and the fault is mine’.

Pattinson has put the team at a disadvantage as no replacement will be called into Australia’s Test squad in their battle with Pakistan. Australia currently has -769.23 while Pakistan has 540 in the betting odds for their match on November 21st. Check out the latest cricket odds on Betwala.
