Heinrich Klaasen slammed 174 off 83 balls to steer a South African batting assault in opposition to Australia within the fourth one-day worldwide at SuperSport Park on Friday. Klaasen shared a unprecedented fifth wicket partnership of 222 off solely 94 balls with David Miller (82 not out) as South Africa piled up 416 for 5, their fifth-highest complete in one-day internationals. Klaasen struck 13 fours and 13 sixes earlier than being caught on the boundary off the final ball of the innings. A run spree of such magnitude didn’t appear seemingly as correct Australian bowling and a slower than regular Centurion pitch noticed South Africa make comparatively sedate progress on a floor identified for top scoring.

On the second drinks break, the overall was 157 for 3 off 32 overs.
The acceleration began with a stand of 74 off 57 balls between Rassie van der Dussen (62) and Klaasen.
It went into over-drive when the left-handed Miller joined Klaasen and hit the second ball he confronted, from leg-spinner Adam Zampa, for six.
What an innings, Heinrich Klaasen , first 25 balls 24 runs, subsequent 58 balls 150.
Miller’s 82 not out got here from 45 balls and included 5 sixes and 6 fours.
It’s a must-win sport for South Africa, with Australia main the five-match collection 2-1.
