Melbourne: James Pattinson is relishing his success against the star-studded Indian batting line-up as his superb bowling effort helped Australia register a comprehensive win in the first Test here on Thursday.
The youngster had match figures of six for 108 and also scored critical 18 and 37 runs in the two innings to earn the man-of-the-match award.
"It's a dream come true to play cricket for Australia at the MCG. To be out there on Boxing Day and against India with that batting line-up... I wasn't even born when Sachin started playing international cricket so to go out there and bowl against him and have some success against their batsmen is unbelievable. To get a win is even better," said the 21-year-old Pattinson.
