Had to maintain tempo: Klaasen

I asked him, ‘Klaasey, what’s the plan? What should we do now?’ He said, ‘If you get the ball you hit, If I get the ball I’ll hit’. So I think that’s a really positive thinking. It’s helping him and it’s helping us as well,” Abhishek said, adding he was motivated to do well due to the presence of his parents in the ground.
