Australia's young fast bowler James Pattinson is taking advice from England's bowling coach David Saker to plot the downfall of the famed Indian batting order in the four-match Test series starting with the Boxing Day Test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) from Monday.


The 21-year-old Pattinson said he has been in touch with fellow Victorian David Saker to learn about the techniques of the Indian batsmen, after the England attack orchestrated a 4-0 series win at home this year. 

The youngster wants to emulate the approach of England's James Anderson, who took 21 wickets at an average of 25 in that series.
