Heinrich Klaasen says the Proteas don’t need to change anything ahead of the ODI series decider against England at Headingley on Sunday.
The visitors were thrashed by 118 runs at Old Trafford on Friday after being bowled out for 83.
“I don’t think we need to change anything because our blueprint is good,” said Klaasen, who was stumped for 33. “We bowled extremely well and even when we were put under pressure, the guys were able to fight back and took wickets after the big overs.
“I don’t think we need to change a lot. We just need to have the belief and the confidence because we’re playing good cricket.
“They bowled extremely well up front and they put us under pressure. They put us on the back foot.”
The Proteas have won just one bilateral ODI series in England, back in 1998, and don’t have a good record in Leeds. Klaasen, though, isn’t bothered by what’s happened in the past.
“We weren’t there and we’re a completely new group of players,” he said. “We try to play our brand of cricket and the blueprint we use now is different from the one that was used at that time.
“Whatever happens now is purely on us and we can’t bring in the past and hold on to it. It’s got nothing to do with us.
“We believe in our brand of cricket that we’re going to play and we’re going to stick to it for as long as possible.”
Sunday’s match starts at 12pm (SA time).
