Quinton De Kock, the keeper-batsman of Mumbai Indians, is playing a significant role in the top-order, particularly when Rohit Sharma is missing the last three games of IPL 2020. Quinton De Kock has scored 392 runs in the ongoing IPL from 12 games at 39.20, despite a lean start to the tournament. The southpaw acknowledges committing trivial errors in the first half of the season, prompting his poor performance and low scores.
In the initial four matches of IPL 2020, Quinton De Kock had scores of 33, 1, 14, and 0, with Rohit Sharma showing unreliable form along with him. Regardless of the poor score from top-order batsmen, the defending champions kept up their strength and stayed in the top half of the points table. It was against the Sunrisers Hyderabad that De Kock got comfortable, striking 67 off 39 balls and smashed three additional half-centuries.
Quinton De Kock disclosed that he hit the ball well in the nets and proceeded to commit a few trivial errors on the field. But, the errors are not beyond repair, and he felt better once he got his rhythm back. The Johannesburg- born cricketer, whose side have already qualified for the playoffs, mentioned that their goal at present is to reach the top two. De Kock further stated that the next match of Mumbai Indians against Delhi Capitals is as important as the last one.
Quinton De Kock feels having an experienced middle-order in the team helps in any circumstance
The 27-year old added that having an experienced middle-order helps in any circumstance, and the openers focus on the best start possible. De Kock uncovered that if the middle-order batsmen are out in the middle, it is essential to provide them the strike since they are the greatest hitters of the ball. Mumbai Indians, without a doubt, have talented middle-order batsmen to finishers. These cricketers are Saurabh Tiwary, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, and Krunal Pandya.
