Victorian bloke plays for England

Darren Pattison is not a name I have heard before., but last night he made his Test match debut for England against South Africa.

He was born in England but lived in Victoria for most of his life. At the age of 28 he made it into the Victorian team. This year he played county cricket for Nottinghamshire and has taken a swag of wickets. He was picked for the Test squad and made it in when another player failed a fitness test.

Others in the England team from foreign nations include:

Andrew Strauss (South Africa).
Kevin Pietersen (South Africa).
Tim Ambrose (Australia. Born about 400m away from where I sit)
