Quinton de Kock equals world record for most dismissals in an ODI
South Africa wicket-keeper Quinton de Kock equalled the world record for most dismissals by a fielder in a One Day International. The feat was achieved during the first ODI between South Africa and New Zealand on Mount Maunganui.
Tuesday’s was the 14th instance in the history of the sport and the 21-year-old becomes the 9th player – all of them wicket-keepers – to do so. Former Australian great Adam Gilchrist has attained the feat 6 times by himself whereas no other player has done it twice. Incidentally, Gilchrist was also the first player to manage the feat back in 2000 against South Africa.
The baby-faced de Kock dismissed Martin Guptill, James Neesham, Dean Brownlie and Luke Ronchi by means of catching and Tom Latham by executing a stumping. De Kock becomes the second South African to bag six victims after Mark Boucher, who pouched six Pakistani batsmen back in 2006.
Indian captain MS Dhoni also performed the act back in 2007 where he dismissed 6 English batsmen. Scotland’s Matthew Cross, who took 6 catches off Canada batsman in a World Cup Qualifier earlier this year, was the recent-most occurrence.
De Kock joins the elite group of Gilchrist, Alec Stewart (England), Ridley Jacobs (WI), Mark Boucher (SA), MS Dhoni (India), Matt Prior (England), Jos Buttler (England) and Matthew Cross (Scotland).
