A player with abundant experience at the county level, she earned her maiden call-up for the series against Sri Lanka. She was either restricted to the bench or seldom selected owing to initial struggles. But she has an impressive economy rate of 4.91 in the 50-over format but in the T20s, she has to work on her economy a tad bit. Klass is one of the players whose swing action and Yorker’s has a unique style that is destructive for the opposition’s batting line-up to collapse, but she is yet to peak in full capacity. She was the main player in SA’s 1st ever win against New Zealand in October, 2016 wherein she picked over 7 wickets in the ODI series, handing her team a historic win. She was a part of the #WWC-2017 where she had a decent run with the ball. In 2018, she had a good series against India, where she picked 2 wickets in both ODI’s and T20’s.
