Heinrich Klaasen’s outstanding century and a splendid performance by South Africa’s bowlers led to a massive 229-run victory over defending champions England in the 20th match of the ICC World Cup at Mumbai’s Wankhede Cricket Stadium on Saturday.

England faced an early setback in the high-stakes World Cup match against South Africa as they crumbled to 38-4.
