Cape Town - Hashim Amla believes he and opening partner Quinton de Kock will soon hit form at the Cricket World Cup.
The two Proteas openers have struggled thus far at the tournament, sharing combined partnerships of just 22 runs in South Africa's first two games (10 v Zimbabwe and 12 v India).
As individuals they have also struggled, with test captain Amla scoring 33 runs (11, 22) and wicketkeeper De Kock adding only 14 (7, 7) to the team's cause.
"I started off slowly in the tournament and I would really like to make a lot of runs in every match, but it's not always possible," Amla told Netwerk24.
"At least I improved on the first match. From time to time, every player goes through a few matches where he doesn't get big scores, but I'm feeling good and hopefully things will soon improve."
Amla is also confident that De Kock would soon start firing.
"Quinny's hitting the ball well and he's the type of player that could witch into a higher gear on any day. Even though he hasn't made a lot of runs yet, nobody in the team is too worried. We know what he's capable of and he's working hard at his game."
The Proteas face the West Indies in Sydney on Friday (from 05:30 SA time).
