South Africa and Durban Super Giants batter Heinrich Klassen has hit the longest six of the ongoing SA20 2024. In the game, the home team, Durban won the toss and elected to bat first. They had a poor start as they lost the wicket of Quinton de Kock early. Matthew Breetzke scored a brisk 35 but failed to convert it into a big score.

JJ Smuts failed again with the bat and Marcus Stoinis didn’t have a great start to his SA20 career either. Klassen (31) played a cameo and laid a platform to get a fighting total before getting out at the team score of 90 runs. During this inning, the South Africa wicketkeeper hit the longest six of the tournament so far.
