Describing his hundred in the washed out third and final One-Day International (ODI) against India as the toughest of the series, young South African batsman Quinton de Kock said his work ethic and confidence has improved manifold in the three matches.
At the Supersport Park, in skipper AB de Villiers’ company, he scored his third successive ton in the series and took South Africa to 301 for 8, before incessant rain didn’t allow India the Indian run-chase to begin.
“It was a tough wicket to bat on. We had to fight for runs and the scoring was tough after we lost quick wickets. So probably it was one of the harder hundreds in these last three,” said the Man of the Series.
“But I have grown up a lot during these three knocks. My confidence is up, at a level it has never been before. My work ethic has improved as well,” he added.
For sure, since de Kock scored 342 runs, the most ever in a three-match ODI series. In doing so, he emulated Herschelle Gibbs and AB de Villiers’ record of scoring three consecutive ODI hundreds.
