Assistant Coach Kevin Shine lauded the toe-to-toe nature of Nottinghamshire’s bowling on a day when the Green and Golds’ overseas seamers - James Pattinson and Dane Paterson - both took five wicket hauls to put their side on the front foot against Sussex. 

Paterson, who is in his second season at the Club, now had 95 First-Class wickets for Nottinghamshire, and Shine spoke of the qualities that have enabled the South African to adapt to English conditions so seamlessly. 

He also praised the maturity shown by Haseeb Hameed and Lyndon James who put on a stand of 138 for the fifth wicket to give the hosts a commanding lead. Shine said the development of both batters is down to extensive graft behind the scenes and an insatiable desire to develop.
