Proteas urge on Clarke

Aap
Friday, November 16, 2012

BRISBANE - For almost 10 hours, Michael Clarke plundered South Africa in the first Test at the Gabba.

By rights, South Africa should be sick of the sight of the Australian captain.

But rookie quick Rory Kleinveldt says the Proteas will spend more time observing Clarke in a bid to work out how to stop him ahead of their rematch in Adelaide starting next Thursday.

Clarke's Gabba record 259 not out in the drawn Test was a batting masterclass.

However, it seems South Africa did not learn much from it.

"We will sit down and have a look at the game, have a look at him and come up with some plans," Kleinveldt said.

"Obviously we need to think out of the box, have a plan b and a plan c.

"Personally it was pretty tough to bowl to him.

"But I am sure we will come up with some plans."

But it seems the Proteas won't be doing any homework on Australian trump card Shane Watson just yet. Kleinveldt said South Africa did not expect Australia's batting line-up to change in Adelaide.
