Australian captain Michael Clarke has said that an Australian cricketer would be 'in the wrong place' if he is not excited by the 'deciding' third Test against South Africa, which he called as the 'biggest game of their summer'.


Clarke mentioned that the third Test against South Africa, beginning in Cape Town tomorrow, shapes as one of the biggest Tests of his decade-long career, adding that lining up for the deciding Test of a delicately balanced series against the top-ranked team in their own back yard is as exciting as cricket can get.

According to Telegraph.com.au, Clarke said that the Test is a wonderful opportunity for them to finish their 'summer' on a high following their 5-0 Ashes win, adding that he hopes that his men can continue their winning momentum into the Newlands Test.

Clarke said that Australia is confident of winning the three-Test series against South Africa due to their strong victory at Centurion Park, adding that the intensity of the cricket against South Africa has never been any different even though both teams have produced equal attacking, high-quality cricket.
