Quinton de Kock was in sublime form against Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022. The left-handed batter hit 140 not out of 70 balls, including 10 fours and as many sixes.
He added 210 runs for the opening wicket with KL Rahul, who accumulated an unbeaten 68 off 51, laced with 4 sixes and 3 fours. The southpaw broke his own captain’s all-time record in the tournament.
The South African player now holds the record of the highest individual score by a wicket-keeper in the cash-rich league.
