Quinton de Kock
South Africa is having a miserable World Cup. Played 3, Lost 3 and almost out of the tournament. Amid all this Quinton De Kock has something to cheer. Against India, he dismissed World’s No. 1 batsman and India’s skipper Virat Kohli by grabbing a stunner.
Two stunning wicket-keeping catches and a handsome blow for six feature in today’s @Nissan Play of the Day moments.
Which was your favourite of the three?

Sheldon Cottrell dismissed Steve Smith with a stunning catch near the boundary ropes. In the 45th over Steve Smith, flick shot was looking like a maximum but Sheldon had other plans. However, Gayle dismissal after a no-ball was the controversy which grabbed everyone’s eye. But, take nothing away from Sheldon Cottrell.
WHAT A CATCH! 👀
