Sydney: Pace legend Glenn McGrath foresees Australia whitewashing India 4-0 in the ongoing Test series as he feels the home team`s pace bowling attack, especially the young James Pattinson, gives it a decisive edge over the visitors.

"Yesterday, I said 3-0 but I stuffed up because I thought there were only three Tests. But definitely 4-0 now," said McGrath at the SCG where he was promoting McGrath Foundation for breast cancer.

"The way the guys have played at the moment I`ve been very impressed. I think a team builds itself around a bowling attack and you look at the bowling attack the team has at the moment.”

"It will give the rest of the guys a lot of confidence so I`m very confident, as confident as I`ve been in years that this team is something special and expecting big things from them too," he added.

McGrath had words of praise for pace bowling sensation James Pattinson.

"I`ve been very impressed to look at James, the way he comes on to bowl. He`s big, he`s strong and he`s nice and tall.”

"He has a good action, he bowls in great areas and got good pace and a great attitude. I`ve really enjoyed watching him bowl and getting stuck into the Indian batsmen," he said.
