Klaasen played an anchor role in the middle overs before taking the charge after going past his half-century. He hit 12 fours and four towering sixes during his innings.

Klaasen’s maiden World Cup century was lauded by Twitter users and the Mumbai crowd alike. Fans rated it as one of the finest ODI centuries in the World Cup. Social media also praised Klaasen’s brutal power-hitting after the 40th over.

Klaasen’s innings helped South Africa carry on with the momentum provided by their top-order batters. Stand-in captain Aiden Markram (42) and David Miller (39) had earlier given South Africa a solid start. Defending champions England need 400 runs to win this game and remain unbeaten in the tournament. However, with the likes of Klaasen in form, South Africa will be confident of their chances of winning their first-ever World Cup title.
