The 31-year-old has featured for Australia on 40 occasions across all three formats of the game, including 21 Tests, 15 ODIs and four T20Is.

Cricket Victoria CEO Nick Cummins, congratulated Pattinson on his achievements for Australia.

“James continues to be a fantastic ambassador for Australian and Victorian cricket and we congratulate him on a fine career at international level,” Cummins said.

“Throughout his career, he has consistently challenged the very best batters in the world.

“James’ journey has included injury hurdles and setbacks, which he has shown the determination to fight his way back from. He always took great pride in representing his country and was the ultimate competitor every time he stepped on the field for Australia.”

While Pattinson has called time on his international career, he will continue to represent Victoria in four-day and one-day cricket and the Melbourne Renegades in the BBL.

General Manager of Cricket Shaun Graf, said:

“James is an outstanding competitor and has been very honest with us about where he is at and what he wants to achieve through the remaining years of his career.”

“We’re looking forward to having him involved more consistently with Victoria and the Renegades and bringing the experience and mentoring he can to our young quicks including Will Sutherland, Mitch Perry, Zak Evans, Sam Elliott, Brody Crouch and Cameron McClure.”
