Klaasen a class apart!

Heinrich Klaasen smashed 174 off just 83 balls vs Australia. He was 24 off 25 balls at one stage before causing carnage

Only Kapil Dev’s ahead

Klaasen now has the 2nd highest ODI score for a batter at No. 5 or below. Kapil Dev’s 175* in 1983 is still top of the list

ABD at top, Klaasen at second

Heinrich Klaasen hit a whopping 13 sixes during his knock, second-most for a Proteas batter in ODI innings after AB de Villiers’ 16 vs WI in 2015

Most 400-plus totals

South Africa finished with 416 on the board, their 7th 400+ total in ODIs - Highest among all nations

Zampa joins unwanted list

Adam Zampa conceded 113 runs from his 10 overs without a wicket - Joint most runs leaked by a bowler in ODIs

Brothers of mayhem

Klaasen, along with David Miller put together 222-run stand in just 94 balls - Fastest-ever double-century partnership in ODIs
