Cape Town [South Africa], Dec 18 : After being omitted from South Africa’s Test squad for England tour, wicketkeeper-batsman Henrich Klaasen has said that the longest format of the game is his biggest passion in life.
“That’s the biggest passion I have. I want to play Test cricket and that’s the only way to play by putting on that baggy green cap,” sports24.co.za reported Klaasen as saying.
The 28-year-old cricket was excluded from the recently announced 17-man Proteas squad after Rudi Second was named as the second wicketkeeper alongside Quinton de Kock.
Henrich said that he needs to do a lot of hard work and perform well to cement his place in the red-ball format.
“Got to go to the four-day game in a few days’ time … I need to go back and perform, that’s the only way to get back into a strong Test squad like we have now,” he said.
The Proteas will take on England in the Boxing Day Test at Centurion on December 26.
