TATA IPL 2022: “He is next to Sachin Tendulkar,” netizens laud Quinton de Kock’s heart winning gesture

The on-field umpire did not call the South African batsman out, but De Kock began walking towards the pavilion, earning him praise from all corners for his sportsmanship.

Quinton de Kock’s sportsmanship during the match against Punjab Kings is being applauded on Twitter. Some Netizens compared De Kock to Sachin Tendulkar, a sportsmanship figure famous for his integrity and who used to just walk away if the ball had edged off his bat.

De Kock tried to hit Sandeep Sharma’s delivery in the 12th over during the 42nd match of the IPL 2022 against Punjab Kings, but that was caught by Jitesh Sharma. Even the Umpire was not given out, but he was aware of this fact and headed back to the pavilion. Sandeep Sharma expresses his appreciation by patting Quinton de Kock on the shoulder.

Quinton was dismissed for 46 runs in 37 balls, including two sixes and four boundaries.

Quinton de Kock and Deepak Hooda put on a 50-run partnership in 43 balls before de Kock was dismissed.
