After a series of impressive performances, Heinrich Klaasen, the talented Proteas batter, is confident that the South African national cricket team is ready to compete for the World Cup trophy.

Klaasen’s outstanding knock of 174 runs, with a strike rate of 209.63, played a pivotal role in South Africa’s resounding 164-run victory over Australia in the fourth ODI.

The hosts managed to level the ODI series at 2-2 with one game left to play, showcasing a remarkable turnaround in form.

During the first half of the home tour, the Proteas struggled to find their rhythm, struggling to build partnerships with the bat and take control of the ball. However, Klaasen believes that the team has finally found their groove.

“I think our batting unit is in a very good space,’ expressed Klaasen, who had an extraordinary 222-run partnership with David Miller (82 not out). ‘All our guys are in form, we’ve got runs under our belts, and we’ve got a lot of experience in India where the World Cup starts next month.”

With the World Cup drawing near, South Africa’s players have accumulated a wealth of knowledge from their previous cricketing experiences in India. This experience, combined with their current form, has given the Proteas confidence as they prepare for the tournament.

“We’re fortunate enough to have played quite a bit of cricket over the years in India, so there’s a lot of knowledge in the batting and bowling units,” Klaasen remarked.

“For us, it’s just about nailing the basics and bringing the intensity, which we did a lot better today.”

The fifth and final ODI between South Africa and Australia, which will determine the series winner, is scheduled to take place at the Wanderers on Sunday at 10 a.m.
