Australian skipper Michael Clarke has admitted that he is due for a big knock during their on-going Test series against South Africa.


Clarke who has come in for criticism for a poor run with the bat recently admitted that he was putting in extra effort to ensure that he gets a huge knock under his belt which will do wonders for his confidence.


“Test cricket does not get any better than this. The third Test against South Africa, beginning in Cape Town tomorrow, shapes as one of the biggest Tests of my decade-long career,” Clarke wrote in his column in The Daily Telegraph.


The Test series is evenly balanced 1-1 and Clarke knows that beating World No.1 South Africa in their own backyard will be tough.
