Sydney: Australian cricket captain Michael Clarke has admitted that it would take some time for his team to get back among the best in Tests and said he was looking forward to an exciting series in Sri Lanka.
Clarke said he was excited at the prospect of leading a young Test side. Almost half the players of the side have the experience of playing five or less matches.
"I'm really confident with the squad we have. I love the fact we've got some new fresh faces that are excited and itching for their opportunity. I think that's a great thing to have around the group," Clarke was quoted as saying in the Australian media before leaving for Sri Lanka.
