In the 2023 World Cup match, which took place at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, South Africa beat England by a score of 229 runs. This amazing win was mostly due to their great performance, which included a huge score of 399 runs, which was helped by Klaasen’s explosive hitting and their strong bowling unit.
South Africa beat England by 229 runs | World Cup 2023
Klaasen was very important because he scored 109 runs, even though he had cramps, which helped South Africa reach their score of 399-7. This was the most points England had ever given up at this level. England’s reaction wasn’t very good. They were having a hard time at 68-6 and then at 170-9 with 28 overs to spare when the game was over. The problem got worse when Reece Topley hurt his hand during South Africa’s innings and couldn’t bat properly. English players were crushed by this loss, which was their worst One-Day International cricket (ODI) loss since 2002, when they lost to Australia by 221 runs in Melbourne.
