Heinrich Klaasen’s scintillating century helped South Africa to a 107-run win in the second warm-up clash of their tour of England at Worcester on Thursday. During his innings, Heinrich Klaasen scored 123 runs in just 85 balls with the help of nine fours and five sixes.

He was supported by Rassi van der Dussen (61) and Andile Phehlukwayo (67). Both displayed excellent batting performances. After winning the toss and electing to bat first, South Africa posted a massive score of 360/7 in their allotted 50 overs as South Africa had to face defeat even after scoring 300 scores in the previous match.

In reply, England Lions could only manage 253 runs in 38.2 overs. They were in immediate trouble in their chase as Proteas captain Keshav Maharaj picked up the dangerous Will Smed (0) and Sam Hahn (0) in the first over of their reply.

Stephen Eskinazzi (79) and Ben Duckett (49) then put on a 75-run partnership for the third wicket and Tabraiz Shamsi dismissed Duckett. Regular wickets for South Africa ensured that the Lions’ chase did not last as Shamsi finished with 3/66, Mahara 2/32, Enrique Nortje 2/63 and Lungi Ngidi 2/39.

After the match, Klaasen said his goal was to continue to play each ball on its own merits but admitted he was in good form with the bat.

Heinrich Klaasen said, ‘I am very happy with my game at the moment. Hopefully I can continue riding the wave. I am really satisfied with the way I am striking the ball. It’s just about staying in the game and taking each ball when it comes.”

South Africa lost the opening match against the same opponents, although that game was more than a practice run out in which they were allowed to use the entire touring squad.

“I think people can take a lot of confidence out of this sport,” Klaasen said.

“They (England) were kind enough to give us two very good wickets to bat on, so I think the batsmen will be smiling going into the series. Today’s bowlers were much better than the first game, so I think the team will gain a lot of confidence from that.”
