Mitchell Johnson has reached his peak, says Tom Moody

Former Australian All-rounder Tom Moody said that tearaway Australian pacer Mitchell Johnson has reached the peak of his powers and added that he is delighted to be watching the Centurion Test as an Australian fan.

Johnson followed up his seven for 68 in the first innings with five for 59 as South Africa were bundled out for 200.

As he did in the first innings, Johnson took a wicket in his first over and dismissed both South African opening batsmen cheaply to set the hosts on a slide from which they were unable to recover.

“I said to (captain) Michael (Clarke) after the first innings that there was definitely room for improvement,” said man of the match Johnson.

“You are always trying to improve as a player, trying to get better, and that’s what I’ll still be trying to do throughout this series, read an AFP report.

“Playing away from home, that’s where you test yourself as a player. We’re up against the number one side so that’s good motivation for us to keep getting better.”

Clarke said Australia’s performance over the four days matched the cricket they played in beating England 5-0 in the recent Ashes series.

“Our batters deserve a lot of credit for the runs they got on quite a nasty wicket and our execution with the ball was a lot better in the second innings,” he said.
