Early careeredit

Patel was earmarked as a promising player early in his career He played age group cricket in Wellington at under 15, under 17, and under 19 levels He played for the New Zealand Cricket Academy in a one-day match against England A in 1999, and debuted for Wellington early the next year with a five wicket bag in a loss to Auckland2

Domestic careeredit

In the 2004 English Season, he represented Buckingham Town Cricket Club, making a big impact in the 1st Team as well as progressing youngsters in local development schemes Patel became the first player in twenty years to take 50 league wickets during his spell at the Bourton Road club and first player ever to go on to play international cricket

Back in New Zealand, Patel showed steady improvement as a bowler during the 2004–05 season, taking 26 first class wickets at an average of 3284 He played two one-dayers against South Africa A on the 2004–05 New Zealand A tour of South Africa, represented the North Island in the 2004–05 State of Origin match, and played for the New Zealand Academy in the 2005 Cricket Australia Emerging Players Tournament

Later in the season he toured Sri Lanka with New Zealand A, playing in a Triangular A Team Tournament

International careeredit

Patel was a member of the 2005 New Zealand tour of Zimbabwe, making his debut as a supersub for New Zealand in the fourth ODI Under the experimental rules at the time, that meant Patel was a full member of the team despite not batting in the XI that scored 238 all out in the first innings He replaced Craig McMillan for Zimbabwe's innings and took 1/473

He returned to the New Zealand squad for the short-form leg of its 2005 tour of South Africa Making his international Twenty20 debut, he was named Man of the Match, taking 3/20 off 4 overs He played as a supersub in the first ODI against the Proteas, returning figures of 2/48 off 84

Patel's first home international was the fourth ODI of Sri Lanka's 2005–06 tour of New Zealand, in which he was named Man of the Match Playing as a supersub, his figures of 2/23 off 10 were the most economical in the match5

His Test debut came against South Africa in the second Test of New Zealand's 2006 tour of South Africa New Zealand's coach John Bracewell described him as a "long term investment"6 Although a regular member of New Zealand's Test squad following his debut, Patel didn't make the XI for another match until 20087 Daniel Vettori was captain and first-choice spinner at the time, and the selectors typically declined to choose two spinners89

Rising through ranksedit

He was a regular member of the ODI and Twenty20 sides, though, and 2007 was his busiest year of international cricket, with 20 appearances By the end of 2008, his New Zealand career had peaked That year he made 13 international appearances and toured Australia with New Zealand A His last Twenty20 match for New Zealand was on 28 December 2008 against the West Indies He never played for his country as regularly again410

He's also having the joint record for taking the most number of catches by a substitute fielder in a T20I innings2 along with Jonathan Carter, Eoin Morgan, Hashim Amla, Johnson Charles and Chamu Chibhabha11He was the first substitute fielder to take 2 catches in a single T20I in 2007


His return was credited to several factors – most obviously his good season with Warwickshire after 11 matches he'd taken 38 wickets and an injury to Daniel Vettori, but also what the New Zealand Herald called "the dearth of decent spinners on the first-class scene in New Zealand"12 He was selected ahead of second spinner Tarun Nethula for both test losses, taking seven wickets in the series131415

Patel remained a member of the team for two tests in Sri Lanka in November 4 wickets, 37 runs, and two in South Africa in January 2013 1 wicket, 13 runs His final test appearance was in Port Elizabeth7

The New Zealand team's tour to India in 2016 saw Mark Craig, one of three frontline spinners in the squad, injured in the first test Patel, who according to captain Kane Williamson "wasn't initially" considered by the selectors for the tour, was named as Craig's replacement16 With only one test remaining in the tour, Patel called it "a moment that could be my last one"17 Patel's recall also coincided with Williamson's omission from the playing side due to being stricken with fever On 31 December 2016, Patel and Matt Henry were named as a replacements for Trent Boult and Lockie Ferguson

In 2017, Patel along with Mitchell Santner shared the honour for becoming the first pair of spinners to kick off an ODI by opening the bowling start an ODI,when they opened the bowling in the first innings of the 4th ODI v South Africa This was the first instance happened only in the ODI history18

In April 2017, Patel was announced in New Zealand's squad for the 2017 Champions Trophy19

County cricketedit

In 2009, Patel joined English county cricket side Warwickshire On debut against Yorkshire he scored 120, his maiden first-class century and a record for a Warwickshire number 10, and shared a ninth wicket partnership of 200 with Jonathan Trott2021 He played his last ODI in October 2009, against Australia ten more test appearances were to come4

In 2010 Patel played three tests against different opponents, averaging 72 bowling and 12 batting4 He returned to Warwickshire briefly and successfully in 2011 Against Sussex in July, he took 10/163, his first 10-wicket bag in first class cricket22 In his only test of 2011 he took 0/142 against Zimbabwe7

In 2012 Patel's extended run of county cricket contributed significantly to Warwickshire's 2012 County Championship with both ball and, at times, bat23 In August he was recalled into the New Zealand test team for its 2012 two Test tour of India, having played only one test in the previous 21 months24

Retirement consideration & Country seasonedit

Patel continued to build on his success with Warwickshire through 2013 52 first class wickets at 3001 and 2014 59 at 2632, and he remained a regular player for Wellington as well25 Over those two English summers and the New Zealand season in between them, his first class batting average was 31726 He declined a recall to the New Zealand team for its tour of the West Indies in April 2014,27 prioritising county cricket and seemingly ending any prospect of further international cricket

His 2014 county season was his most celebrated, being the only player to take over 100 wickets across all formats and winning the MVP award from the Professional Cricketers' Association28 He topped the bowling averages in both the Royal London One-Day Cup 23 wickets at 17 and the NatWest t20 Blast 25 wickets at 1329 He ended 2014 with a total of 185 first class wickets for Warwickshire, at an average of 271230 Following this Warwickshire announced a new two-year deal with Patel31 In 2015 Patel was named as one of five Wisden Cricketers of the Year for 20141

In September 2015 Patel again took topped 50 wickets in the County Championship season, for the fourth successive year32 He finished seventh on the competition's list of wicket-takers with 58 wickets at 2527, and was named in the Professional Cricketers' Association Team of the Year3334 The next year he topped the wicket-takers' list in County cricket with 69, and was named the season's Most Valuable Player by the Professional Cricketers' Association16
