Quinton de Kock played with exuberance for Lucknow Super Giants against Kolkata Knight Riders to score a brilliant ton in an Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 on Wednesday. He stayed unbeaten on 140 (70b, 10x6s, 10x4s) as LSG scored a massive 210/0 in 20 overs. His fellow opener and LSG captain KL Rahul stayed unbeaten on 68* (51b, 4x6s, 3x4s). When they crossed the score of 185 together, the duo's stand became the highest-ever by openers in the history of the IPL. This is also the highest-ever stand for any wicket against KKR.
de Kock's score of 140 is the highest individual score in IPL 2022. This is also the third highest-ever individual score in the history of the IPL after the 175* by Chris Gayle (RCB v PWI, Bengaluru, 2013) and a 158* by Brendon McCullum (KKR v RCB, Bengaluru, 2008).
Rahul and De Kock's stand of 210* is the third-highest ever partnership for any wicket in IPL after 229 by Virat Kohli - AB De Villiers (RCB v GL, Bengaluru, 2016) and 215* Kohli-De Villiers (RCB v MI, Mumbai , 2015).
