Johannesburg: New Zealand fast bowler Trent Boult has labelled the upcoming three-match Test series against Australia as the ' highlight of his career', adding that he is looking forward to play one of the massive game against the trans-Tasman rivals.
Describing Australia as 'better' Test opponents at the moment, the 26-year-old affirmed that his side has got a good blueprint to play the game, Sport24 reported.
Boult said that although his side have not beaten Australia in a series for the last thirty years, there is a motivation level to succeed this time.
Australia, which remained unbeaten against New Zealand since 1985, will be headed by new skipper Steve Smith. It will be Smith's first assignment as full-time captain.
Australia will also miss the services of veteran wicket-keeper Brad Haddin, opening batsman Chris Rogers and all-rounder Shane Watson in the upcoming series.
They will play three Tests against New Zealand on their home soil, starting from November 5 at the Gabba, Brisbane.
