South Africa opener Quinton de Kock lost his wicket in an unfortunate manner in the T20 World Cup match against the Netherlands in New York on Saturday (June 8). The left-hander was run out after a miscommunication with his opening partner Reeza Hendricks. De Kock departed for a diamond duck.

The dismissal came off the very first ball of Proteas’ run-chase. Vivian Kingma bowled a full-length ball down the leg side and Hendricks failed to guide it down the leg side. The ball hit the pad and went towards the short fine leg. The right-hander set off for the run before deciding against it.

Kock was stranded more than halfway through the pitch as the fielder Paul van Meekeren threw it back to the bowler’s end. Max O'Dowd collected the ball and dislodged the bails in a flash.

De Kock had departed for 20 runs off 27 deliveries in his last game against Sri Lanka.
