Australian captain Michael Clarke has hailed pace sensation Mitchell Johnson, saying that he is bowling better than any other bowler in world cricket at the moment.

Johnson was ruthless as he collected a dozen South African scalps in the first Test at Centurion Park, which ended inside five days, as the hosts fell to a crushing 281-run defeat on Saturday.

According to Sport24, Clarke said that he is aware there is no cricket fan in the world who does not know that the left-armer is bowling 150 km/h and executing his skills better than anyone else in the world at the moment, adding that he has done it against England in the Ashes and he is showing his prowess in South Africa in different conditions.

Stating that the combination of pace and accuracy from Johnson is lethal, Clarke also said that although it is an amazing skill to bowl fast, Johnson is world class in the sense that he is able to hit his mark very often, adding that he has got the right attitude to be even more better.
