KES Old Boy De Kock smashes his highest ODI score!

King Edward VII School Old Boy and Proteas batsman, Quinton de Kock was in sublime form for the Proteas vs England in the 1st ODI in Bloemfontein on Wednesday, 3 January.

Quinton’s 136* however was in vain as the much needed rain in the Free State took the spoils and England won on the D/L method.

Our Old Boy in this innings reached two remarkable milestones:

1) Quinton’s 136* was his highest ODI international score.

2) At just 23 years and 48 days old he becomes the youngest South African batsman to reach 2000 runs in ODI’s.

Fantastic effort, wonderful skills and pure class from this young man. Quinton, your School and Country applaud. Long may this vein of form continue.

Go School!
