A fast-medium bowler of speeds close to 140 kilometres per hour, his probing lengths and consistency can challenge the temperament and technical correctness of top-class batsmen.
He spearheaded the attack and captured 39 wickets in nine matches at an average of 14.66, including a career-best match-haul of 10 for 62.
Paterson, who represented the Sunfoil Dolphins before returning to his Cape Town-roots in 2013, also played with some success for the winners of the Sunfoil Series, the Nashua Cape Cobras, in 2013/2014.
He was a standout-performer during a high-scoring drawn match against the Chevrolet Warriors at St. George’s Park, taking five for 101 in 28 overs.
Commentators have remarked about his ability to bowl wicket to wicket while never giving batsmen a sniff to release the pressure.
One of Paterson’s finest moments in the 2014/2015-season came in the Ram Slam T20 Challenge final at Newlands. He removed Rilee Rossouw and Obus Pienaar with successive deliveries to turn the tide.
The destroyer-in-chief for the Cobras, Paterson set up their 33-run win with his four for 33.
