Not only this, but both put an end to the rivalry quickly and finished the matter with a fist bump. Klassen’s hundred was Proteas’ fifth ton in the ongoing edition of the ODI World Cup. It is the joint most for them in a single edition of the marquee ICC event. 

Speaking of the match, after a powerful bowling display, the Proteas extended their red-hot form in the second inning of the game as well. The South African bowlers absolutely destroyed the English batting order and knocked them out at 170 to register a 229-run win.
