Kleinveldt eyeing return to Proteas limited overs squad

Johannesburg, Oct 30 : Cape Cobras seamer Rory Kleinveldt is hoping for a big One-Day Cup series to force his way back into the Proteas limited-overs squad.

According to Sport24, Kleinveldt revealed that it was disappointing to get dropped, adding that it was never a nice feeling but he had suffered even bigger setbacks in his career and always bounced back.

He added that he intends to do just that again, starting with putting in performances for the Cape Cobras and helping his franchise into the playoffs.

Meanwhile, Kleinveldt, who had struggled with weight problems in the past, looked leaner and fitter than he had done in previous seasons, which would only bode well for the fast bowler and the Cobras, the report said.

Kleinveldt has been a regular in the Proteas squad, across all three formats for the past 12 months, but was recently dropped for the current one-day series in Pakistan, the report added.

The national selectors opted instead for his Cobras teammate and Test star Vernon Philander, with Kleinveldt returning from the United Arab Emirates last Sunday after the completion of the Test series, according to the report.
