Quinton de Kock century: Quinton de Kock is making his last ODI World Cup completely memorable. He scored his fourth century in the seventh match of the World Cup 2023. This time De Kock scored a century against New Zealand in Pune. He completed his century in 103 balls with the help of 8 fours and 3 sixes. Earlier, he had played century innings against Sri Lanka, Australia and Bangladesh. After his century against New Zealand, De Kock is just one century away from Rohit Sharma’s record. Against New Zealand, De Kock played an inning of 114 runs in 116 balls with the help of 10 fours and 3 sixes.
The record of scoring most 5 centuries in a single edition of ODI World Cup is in the name of Rohit Sharma, who scored 5 centuries in the 2019 edition. De Kock has reached four centuries. In such a situation, by scoring just one more century, he will equal Rohit Sharma’s record. De Kock became the third batsman in the world to score 4 or more centuries in a single edition of the ODI World Cup. Sri Lanka’s Kumar Sangakkara had scored 4 centuries in the 2015 tournament.
Before this century, De Kock had crossed the mark of 500 runs in the tournament, making a world record and becoming the first South African batsman to cross the mark of 500 runs in an edition of the ODI World Cup. South African opener Quinton de Kock is also the highest run scorer in the tournament with 4 centuries.
