Quinton de Kock put on a batting masterclass today, hitting 174 off just 140 balls against Bangladesh in the ICC Cricket World Cup.
His knock was laced with 15 fours and 7 sixes, and it helped South Africa post a mammoth total of 382-5.
De Kock started slowly, but he soon found his rhythm and began to take the Bangladesh bowlers apart.
He was particularly severe on the spinners, smashing them for sixes at will. He also showed his class against the pacers, driving them through the covers and pulling them to the square-leg boundary.
De Kock's innings was finally brought to an end by Hasan Mahmud, who caught him at deep backward point. But by then, the damage had already been done. South Africa went on to win the match by a huge margin of 149 runs.
De Kock's performance was praised by fans and pundits alike. Many called it one of the greatest ODI innings of all time.
It was certainly one of the most destructive and entertaining innings that anyone has seen in a long time.
