Fotia takes five-wicket haul after visit to Pace Foundation

AUSTRALIAN U19 fast bowler Matt Fotia credited a visit to Glenn McGrath's Pace Foundation academy in Chennai for his five-wicket haul to open the international series in Darwin.

Australia will take on India in its second game after beating New Zealand by 19 runs on Sunday.

Fotia finished with the figures of 5-38 in that match, and said spending a fortnight with McGrath in India had been invaluable.

"He was helping us with how to get batsmen out and thinking about the game itself and little tricks he used," Fotia said.

"Things like listening to a song before you go onto the field ... things that click you into rhythm."
