JOHANNESBURG (AP) -- Michael Clarke has got just about everything right in South Africa so far.

From the Australia captain's insistence that his bowling attack is better than the higher-ranked opposition, to his correct analysis of a deceptive Centurion pitch that left the home team baffled in the first test, to his unleashing of lethal left-arm quick Mitchell Johnson in the short, sharp bursts that sliced through No. 1-ranked South Africa and left scars, likely mental as well as physical, for the remaining two matches of the series.

One thing he's a little off on, though, according to the signs at SuperSport Park, is his assessment that the Australia team is still "a long way" from the top after bringing the top-ranked team to its knees to win a sixth straight test -- all of them by some distance.
