South Africa continues to give India a hard time, even in the final One-Day International (ODI) at the Newlands Cricket Ground in Cape Town on Sunday. Meanwhile, wicketkeeper-opener Quinton de Kock has slammed his 17th century in the format, putting his side on the top. As a result, the netizens have once again hailed him.

Winning the toss, Indian skipper KL Rahul invited South Africa to bat. The hosts were off to a shaky start, struggling at 70/3 by the 13th over. However, de Kock seemed to have gotten comfortable right from the start. He and Rassie van der Dussen put on more than a 100-run stand for the fourth wicket to bring SA back in control of the innings.
