Klaasen clubs lightning ton as SA beat Windies
Heinrich Klaasen smashed an unbeaten 119 from 61 balls as South Africa eased to a four-wicket victory over West Indies in the third and final one-day international at Senwes Park on Tuesday, ensuring the honours are shared in the series.
South Africa won the toss and elected to bowl, restricting the tourists to 260 all out.
They got into trouble early on in their reply as they slipped to 87-4, only to cruise to victory thanks to Klaasen's power hitting with an astonishing 123 balls remaining in the innings.
"It's a pretty good wicket and that is one of my better knocks," Klaasen said at the post-match presentation. "We tried to play to the conditions, not the situation, and I had to fight fire with fire early on against some excellent bouncers from Alzarri (Joseph).
