Australian pace sensation James Pattinson, who tormented Indian batsmen a year ago Down Under, says pacers will go all out against Indians. After a long injury lay-off, James Pattinson is back to where he belongs, donning the Australian whites and itching the hold the red cherry once again.

The rookie speedster was out of the game with an unusual side and rib injury, which he picked up in the home series against South Africa in late November. Having earlier feared to be out for more than three months, the 22-year-old fought back to make it the Australian squad for the four-Test tour of India.

"It is fantastic to be back in the Australian whites after a lay-off. Being out of the team is quite disappointing but I am looking forward to what's coming ahead of us," said the right-arm bowler ahead of the team's practice session in Chennai on Thursday.
