Heinrich Klaasen Biography

Cricket might not be as developed and with as large a following as, say, football, but it is an engrossing sport anyway, and Heinrich Klaasen happens to be among the key figures in the sport in South Africa right now.

Born in Pretoria, Heinrich’s interest in the sport caught fire pretty early and nothing could put away that fire, not even injuries which he sustained later while on the pitch. From an unknown face, he has worked his way into one of the most recognised faces in the game.

He has played not only in South Africa but in the Indian Premier League as well.


Heinrich Klaasen is 31 years at the time of writing. He will be 32 later in 2023.


If you have designs on Heinrich Klaasen, you’re on a long thing as the cricketer is no longer on the market. He is married to Sone Martin, with whom he appears fiercely in love. he had once made it known, posting a picture of them in their wedding attires, that he loves her “to the moon and back.” He often identifies Sone as his best friend.


The cricketer is somewhat on the tall side standing at approximately 180 cm.


As far as stats go, Heinrich Klaasen isn’t doing badly. In fact, he has got numbers to be proud of. A snapshot of his stats is given below. It is by no means comprehensive.

Net Worth

Sportsmen, especially the best of them, earn pretty high. Heinrich Klaasen is no exception. Although he is uninterested in conversations regarding his net worth, the public has been doing the talking. His net worth is estimated to be $4 million.


Heinrich Klaasen lives in South Africa with his family. The details of his home are just not out there – not surprising given that he isn’t one to share everything with the public.


For some people, cars serve purposes beyond transport – it is a status symbol, or else give clues about their current stations in life. One can’t tell where Heinrich Klaasen stands. He appears modest in his tastes, with his only car (at some point reportedly) being a white Ford Ranger.

A Ford Ranger is known to be one of the most reliable mid-sized pickup trucks out there and is in avid use in the United States and elsewhere.

Cricket Career

It has often been said that people don’t usually pop into their current positions at the top. They started somewhere, sometimes without the public being aware of the inception. That’s partly the story of Heinrich Klaasen. His interest in cricket started pretty early and he had the courage to stick it out until he emerged as a force on the pitch.

As early as 2011, he had been selected for the Northern franchise cricket team which gave him his first-ever opportunity to play his first T20s match against North West. He has not looked back since.

Six years later, in 2017, when South Africa was to face New Zealand in the Test series, he was picked but ended up not playing. In August of the same year, he was selected for the Nelson Mandela Bay Stars T20 franchise cricket.

A year later, when a South African player was injured in the 3rd ODI against India, he was picked as a replacement. He has continued to grow as part of South Africa’s national cricket team
