Pat expressed it when a media reporter asked Nathan if he had seen the list of the seven bowlers ahead of him on the all-time Test list. Nathan replied he failed in mathematics in school. He is not very good with numbers. Pat and he figured it out at the time when they were batting at Edgbaston. He has no idea.

Pat instantly responded saying he (Nathan) knows exactly who he ticks off every time. He addressed Nathan and said that;’s four or five years with ten (Tests) per year. What do you think your average is? Four per game? That brings the total to 700.

Furthermore, Pat said if Nathan played 50 more tests, he would be well on his way to breaking Shane’s record of 700 test wickets. He praised the performances of Nathan and described him as an important player in the bowling attack.
