Klaas currently holds the record for the highest individual score by a Netherlands batsman in a one-day international, after his unbeaten 134 against Namibia in the 2003 World Cup. He came into the national squad in 1994 and made a name for himself in his country's maiden World Cup appearance two years later, when he scored 64 against England. His former captain Roland Lefebvre described him as "a very interesting character, whose deep thinking and extraordinary theories sometimes make people believe he lives on a different planet," but his performances for Holland were very much grounded in reality. Klaas currently works as an organisational trainer/coach.
