International Captain
Yeah, such buzz around Klusener at the time. In all the world cups I have seen, no player had as great an intimidation factor coming out as he did. I think only Buttler comes close in recent years, but Buttler's so mild-mannered compared to Zulu with his compulsive gumchewing, gold chain, and ten-ton bat.

Fmd I still don’t reckon I’ve seen two balls hit harder through cover than Klusener’s off Fleming in that 99 semi final. Insane power
The first one was a near yorker too and he squeezed it out with insane power. Actually a very modern way of dealing with the yorker with that wide stance and trying to slice it square rather than straight.

One of them just burst through Reiffel's fingers.
I think that was one over long on the previous over. Reiffel tapped it over the bar and it went for six. I remember thinking when it happened “I’ll go the airport and throw rocks at that useless ****”

Mind you if he catches it we are robbed of an ATG finish
