Melbourne Pleased by new pace sensation James Pattinson, former Australian perfect Glenn McGrath today said that the youngster has all the qualities of becoming a remarkable in future.
Pattinson has produced a brilliant begin to his career by taking 20 wickets from three Tests already and he bowled Australia to victory twice.
Against India too he has made a superb start by taking six wickets in the Melbourne Test, which his side won by a extensive margin of 122 runs.
“I think he has all the features to be a great fast bowler,” McGrath said while promoting the Pink Test in honour of the McGrath Foundation's fight against breast cancer.
“He's tall, strong, he hits good areas, bowls good pace and he has a good bit of aggression there,” McGrath said.
The fast bowling legend also liked the manner in which senior pace duo of Peter Siddle and Ben Hilfenhaus bowled.
“Ashes veterans Siddle and Ben Hilfenhaus were also bowling with a new lease of life,” McGrath was quoted as saying by 'Sydney Morning Herald'.
