T20 World Cup 2021: WATCH – Quinton de Kock gets out in a bizzare fashion against Australia

Australia had to make hard work of chasing 119 to beat South Africa in a tense opening game of Super 12s at the 2021 T20 World Cup on Saturday.

Marcus Stoinis and Matthew Wade added an unbeaten 40 as Australia won by five wickets with two balls to spare in Abu Dhabi.

Steve Smith made 34-ball 35 after Australia lost their top three batsmen for just 38 runs.

South Africa earlier laboured to 118/9, with Aiden Markram (40) being the top scorer. For Australia, Josh Hazlewood, Adam Zampa and Mitchell Starc bagged two wickets apiece.

Quinton de Kock’s dismissal caught the attention of fans

During South Africa’s innings, the dismissal of their opening batter Quinton de Kock caught the attention of fans, with some terming it as the ‘strangest dismissal of the tournament’.

It all happened on the first ball of the fifth over. Facing Hazlewood, whose figures read 1/1 after his first over, De Kock got inside the line of the ball and tried to ramp it over fine leg. However, the ball rushed onto his thigh pads, missing the bat and ballooned up. After bouncing, the ball soon went to hit the stumps.

Moreover, upon watching the replay, it seems that De Kock had lost sight of the ball, and therefore he attempted to run. The southpaw did not try to stop the ball from hitting his stumps.

Any Side Could Upset India In Any Knockout Game As India Lacks Plan B And T20I Is Unpredictable: Nasser Hussain

Nasser Hussain, the former England skipper, feels that “any side can defeat” India in the knockout stage of the ICC T20 World Cup, owing to their lack of plan B and the uncertain nature of the shortest format of the game. India has looked in fine form in the run-up to the tournament, having defeated heavyweights England and Australia in the two warm-up games prior to the group games in the 2021 T20I World Cup against Pakistan, New Zealand, Afghanistan, Scotland, and Namibia. Their players also have the required match practice under their belts, thanks to the recently concluded IPL
