Played My Natural Game: Quinton de Kock on His 178 vs Australia

Quinton de Kock struck the second highest ever score by a South African as the Proteas scored a crushing six-wicket victory over Australia in the first One-Day International (ODI) played at SuperSport Park in Centurion on Friday. The young opener blasted 178 from 113 deliveries, clubbing 11 sixes and 16 fours along the way, to help the hosts secure a famous win over Australia. Set 295 for victory, they almost made a mockery of the target by breezing past it with almost 14 overs to spare to take a 1-0 lead in the five-match series. De Kock's blitz was second only to that of Gary Kirsten's unbeaten 188 scored against United Arab Emirates in Rawalpindi during the 1996 World Cup. (Video courtesy: Cricket South Africa)
