Dane Paterson has become the latest Proteas player to opt for the Kolpak route as the speedster is in the last stages of finalizing a deal with Nottinghamshire. The 31-year-old fast bowler was recently a part of South Africa’s squad for the Test series against England where he managed to play two games.
Paterson has also turned out for the national side in four ODIs and eight T20Is but has failed to become a regular member of South Africa’s cricketing setup. He follows the path of dozens of his compatriots before him, who also went down the Kolpak way to earn lucrative contracts for English county clubs.
Paterson’s arrival in England’s domestic circuit will have to wait currently in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, which has already led to the postponement of the start of the County Championship. The right-arm pacer will now not be a member of Cape Cobras in their upcoming season of the domestic competition.
