Quinton de Kock’s Bizarre Dismissal As He Gets Bowled While Attempting Reverse-Pull

South African batter Quinton de Kock set the stage on fire in the ongoing match 10 of the ICC World Cup 2023 against Australia. The keeper-batter put his team on the top at the Ekana Stadium in Lucknow with his staggering batting but got out while attempting an unorthodox shot. 

Quinton de Kock slammed his second consecutive century of the ICC World Cup as he took Australia’s bowlers to the cleaners. The opening batter timed the ball to perfection and played some breathtaking shots. His innings provided a great platform for Proteas to end the innings on high. 

It seemed that Quinton de Kock would get a big hundred but he couldn’t as he got out bizarrely. It was during the 5th ball of the 36th over when Glenn Maxwell bowled a short ball. The batter tried to play the reverse pull and smack it for six. 

But he got into a clumsy position. The ball took the inside edge which dropped off his body and then bounced onto the stumps to send him packing after a brilliant hundred. Here’s the video:
