South Africa wicket-keeper batsman Heinrich Klaasen became an overnight sensation after he guided his side to a 5-wicket victory against India in the Pink ODI at the Wanderers on Saturday.
With the Proteas chasing 202 in 28 overs to win in a rain-affected game, Klaasen’s blinder of 47 off just 27 balls proved to be the gamechanger. His blistering knock also helped the hosts stay alive in the 6-match ODI series, which now stands at 3-1.
Amidst all the cricketing action, the Twitter was more excited about his looks as he exactly resembles New Zealand’s opener, Martin Guptill.
Here’s are some of the best Twitter reactions:
