In the 28th match of the SA20 league, Durban’s Super Giants take on the Pretoria Capitals. The team led by Quinton De Kock has set a lofty goal for the Pretoria Capitals to chase. DSG put 254 runs on the scoreboard in 20 overs; the top order was the star of the squad, as Quinton De Kock and Ben McDermott gave the team a good start with 43 and 41 runs, respectively.
But the real star of the first inning was Heinrich Klassen. The 31-year-old put up an impressive display by scoring 104 off just 44 balls. Becoming the second player to score a century in the tournament, Klassen was instrumental in DSG posting the highest score of the tournament so far.
Klassen smashed the ball all over the park, where he hit six sixes and ten fours in his fabulous knock. The 31-year-old has been in sensational form throughout the tournament. He scored his first half century of the tournament when DSG faced off against Paarl Royals. Playing a sensational knock in the 8th T20, Klassen scored 50 off just 19 balls.
He scored another half-century in the very next match when they faced PR once more. Klassen now sits in second place on the list of the top run scorers of the tournament, just below Faf Du Plessis. With 363 runs in 10 matches, the 31-year-old just needs six runs to become the top scorer of the tournament.
With an average of 60.5, Heinrich Klassen is in the form of his life. Taking just 43 balls to complete his century, Klassen lit the SuperSport Park on fire with his insane knock.
