    Melbourne: Australian pace sensation James Pattinson can't wait for the four-Test series against India later this month as he feels there is no bigger challenge for him than bowling at their famed batting line-up.

    "That's the pinnacle, the Boxing Day Test. When I was young I would go every year. So to be out there playing is going to be a dream come true - if I get the chance," Pattinson said referring to the first Test on December 26.

    "And against India - there is no better challenge than their batsmen," he told Fox Sports.

    The 21-year-old Pattinson has had a sensational debut grabbing a five-wicket haul in each of his first two Tests, a feat last accomplished by an Aussie pacer, Rodney Hogg, in 1978.
