South African Quinton de Kock produced another lightning-fast stumping to put aside Venkatesh Iyer in the 2nd ODI against India at Boland Park in Paarl. The Proteas pulled things back to restrict visitors after a strong start.

The incident took place in the 44th when de Kock proved once again why he is one of the best wicket-keepers in the business right now. Rishabh Pant last game and Venkatesh Iyer today.

It was a slower delivery of short length sliding down the side of the leg and Iyer looked for a tickle and imbalances in the process to give Quinton de Kock that split second to perform a really clean stump.

The back feet were in the air for a flash of a second and it was good enough for de Kock to pull the bails out in a jiffy.

After winning the toss, India were 179/2 at the end of 31 overs riding KL Rahul’s 50s and Rishabh Pants. A break, however, stalled the momentum with the dismissals of both set hitters.

The mid-order scars were exposed with Shreyas and Venkatesh Iyer struggling to get out of the spinning canvas, ultimately exposing bowlers for slog overs. Shardul Thakur and Ravichandran Ashwin added 48-run support for the seventh wicket to post 287 runs on the board for South Africa to chase.
