Profile

Should the South Africans go for an all-out pace attack, Rory Kleinveldt is their man. The big unit showed in the practice match at the SCG that he a more than capable bowler, picking up two wickets, including the scalp of Phil Hughes.

His shape back into the left handers was good in Sydney, but he didn’t get through as many overs as he would have liked.

Although he hasn’t played much international cricket, Kleinveldt has had a solid First Class career, picking up 221 wickets in 78 matches.
 
His batting could also be a drawcard for future international selection, as he possesses a healthy lower order average of just over 18, and boasts a First Class century to his name.

Kleinveldt has had a less than impressive introduction to international cricket, with the big man featuring in two ill-fated T20 matches back in 2010. He bowled a total of five overs in his two games, which cost his side 68 runs. His disastrous economy rate was offset by the three wickets he took.

It is unlikely that he will see much action on this tour, but should the South African selectors be tempted by greenish looking wickets, he will be ready and rearing to go.
