Watch: Quinton de Kock’s sportsmanship earns him a pat on the back from bowler Sandeep Sharma – Firstcricket News, Firstpost
Punjab Kings (PBKS) right-arm pacer Sandeep Sharma got rid of the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) opener Quinton de Kock with a perfect delivery in their Indian Premier League match at Pune’s Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium on Friday. The ball landed on off stump and nipped away to the keeper.
De Kock started off with a bang against Punjab after Lucknow Super Giants lost their captain KL Rahul pretty early in the innings. De Kock scored 46 runs off 37 balls and this innings included four fours and two sixes, before he was dismissed by Sandeep on the fourth ball of the 13th over.
Sandeep ran in and bowled a slower length ball outside the off stump – this ball bounced just a touch and de Kock tried to cut it away off the back foot behind point, but all he could manage was a faint edge to the keeper.
Although, there was loud appeal, the umpire was unmoved, but after a slight delay, Quinton de Kock walked. As he passed Sandeep, he was patted on the back by the bowler.
