Watch: Ball Hits The Stumps But Bails Hang On As Quinton de Kock Survives A Dismissal

South African skipper Quinton de Kock, on Sunday, survived a rather amusing dismissal against Pakistan in the second ODI as both the teams locked horns in Johannesburg. Having already won the first ODI, Pakistan won the toss in the second game and elected to field first as the Proteas were invited to bat.

Quinton de Kock and Aiden Markram gave a solid start to the hosts and thrashed the Pakistan bowlers all over the park in the first powerplay. The two batsmen stitched together a partnership of 55 runs but Markram fell short as he was caught by Asif Ali off Faheem Ashraf in the 10th over.

However, after Markram’s dismissal, Quinton de Kock and Temba Bavuma carried the onslaught as they too stitched a giant partnership for the third wicket. The skipper led from the front as he completed his 26th ODI half-century. He also completed 500 ODI runs against Pakistan in the process.

However, in the 24th over of the game, a rather interesting incident took place when the ball clipped Quinton de Kock’s stumps but the bails didn’t fall and he survived a rather amusing dismissal. If de Kock would have returned to the pavilion, Pakistan would have come in the driving seat in the game.

The Proteas Cruising To A Giant Total

South Africa are cruising to a giant total in the second ODI against Pakistan after losing the toss in the second game too. As the hosts were invited to bat first, Aiden Markram and de Kock saw them through in the first powerplay. After Markram’s dismissal, de Kock and Temba Bavuma carried the onslaught and helped the Proteas gain cruise control.

Until this report was written, South Africa had scored 151 runs for the loss of just one wicket in 28 overs. If South Africa manage to win this match, they will level the three-match series 1-1. If Pakistan win the second game, they will seal the series.
