Fast bowler Kleinveldt says Proteas can't afford to be 'one-dimensional' in Adelaide Test
South Africa fast bowler Rory Kleinveldt, who went wicket less in his Test debut at the Gabba against Australia, has said the Proteas bowlers can't afford to be one-dimensional in the second Test at Adelaide.
Kleinveldt said South Africa would devise a multi-faceted game plan to prevent Australian century-makers Michael Clarke and Ed Cowan replicating their first Test heroics in Adelaide.
The Proteas lamented their inability to contain the counter-offensive of Clarke (259 not out) and Cowan (136), who combined for a 259-run stand after Australia had slumped to 3-40.
"We have to get a few plans to Ed Cowan and Michael Clarke, execution will be vital for us," News.com.au quoted Kleinveldt, as saying.
"Personally, it was really tough to bowl to him (Clarke), but we'll sit down and come up with some plans," he added.
"We need to think out of the box and have a plan B and C if plan A doesn't work. I'm sure we'll come up with some plans for the next Test," he said.
