Cape Town - All-rounder JP Duminy says the Proteas' drubbing at the hands of New Zealand is not a worry ahead of the Cricket World Cup.
The South Africans were on Wednesday crushed by 134 runs in their final warm-up match ahead of the showpiece event which starts this weekend.
New Zealand posted 331 for eight off their allotted 50 overs at Hagley Oval in Christchurch, before bowling the Proteas out for 197.
Duminy was the a rare shining light for South Africa, scoring 80 runs to add some respectability to their total after at one stage stuttering on 62 for six.
But Duminy remained confident that the Proteas will be ready for the start of the World Cup.
"We're definitely not worried about the result. For us it was merely a practice run," he told Netwerk24.
"There was not nearly as much intensity as you'd get in a normal match. We have two net practices left before our first match and the guys know what they still need to work on."
The Proteas start their World Cup campaign against Zimbabwe in Hamilton on Sunday (from 03:00 SA time).
