Mohali: The other nations participating in the ongoing World Cup might be jittery by looking at the potent South Africa’s bowling arsenal but SA coach does not feel they have a well balanced attack.

The Proteas coach says it is variety in the bowling attack that makes the South African attack a potent force in the ongoing tournament.

"I won't say it the most-balanced attack. I think we got a lot of options and that's good to have. I think it's been long time since the South African team has had these options available. So balance is not the right word but option is," Van Zyl said on the eve of their match against the Netherlands here on Thursday.

The South Africans, who are known for their pace battery, surprised everyone when they opted to go with three spinners - Imran Tahir, Johan Botha and Robin Peterson -- in their tournament opener against West Indies in New Delhi.

And the spin trio immediately came to the party as they played a crucial role in South Africa's seven-wicket win over the Caribbean side.

High on confidence after a great start, the South Africans are expected to have an easy outing against the minnows here tomorrow but they are not ready to take anything for granted.

"We need to field our strongest combination. You know this is our just second game and we are here for quite a while now so it is important we keep going," said Van Zyl.

"It's important for us to take this as a whole campaign. We want to take one game at a time and therefore it is important that the guys don''t look a lot further than that. We want to win the game (tomorrow) and that''s very important for us. We want to see our combinations are right going forward," he added.

In fact, Van Zyl made it clear that South Africa cannot afford to under-estimate their opponents tomorrow as it could prove fatal.

"If we under-estimate the Netherlands we might run into trouble. But certainly we are not doing that. We are taking every precaution. We look at the Netherlands exactly the same way we looked at every other team," said the coach.
