Newly-crowned T20 Blast champions Worcestershire uncovered a gem in this year’s T20 Blast in the form of Pat Brown but, what’s his story?
Who the hell?
What’s his story?
Brown’s white-ball guile is underlined by his economy rate during the closing overs of an innings. According to CricViz, his economy rate of 7.21 runs per over was second only to Wahab Riaz in this year’s competition. This was no mean feat in a tournament where the average run-rate was the highest of any T20 tournament ever at 8.83 runs per over. His array of variations helped him achieve brilliant combined figures of 8-0-36-4 on Finals Day.
“After this he is very close (to the England squad). The quality he is showing is international standard. I wouldn’t be surprised if he gets something in the winter. I can see him getting a chance in T20 or one-day matches or something. From game one this season, I felt he was getting better game by game. I’ve not seen anybody in county cricket get hold of him yet. It’s not just what he bowls. He has the character and the guts to go a long way.” – England all-rounder and Worcestershire teammate Moeen Ali.
