In the match, Klaasen, who scored 81 off 46 with seven fours and five sixes, had arrived at the crease with his team in deep trouble at 29/3 at the end of the powerplay. Pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar had shaken the Proteas batting with his bowling.
It was then Klaasen who formed a 64-run stand with skipper Temba Bavuma (35), which was instrumental in the four-wicket win of his side.
With this, he surpassed the score of wicketkeeper-batter Quinton De Kock, who scored 79* against the Men in Blue in Bengaluru in the third and final T20I of the series back in 2019.
Coming to the match, an explosive knock from Heinrich Klaasen (81) powered South Africa to a four-wicket win over India in the second T20I of the five-match series at Barabati Stadium in Cuttack on Sunday. (With ANI inputs)
