Quinton de Kock played the sheet anchor’s role in Mumbai Indians’ 149-run chase against Kolkata Knight Riders where he steered his team to a convincing win by eight wickets and 19 balls to spare in Abu Dhabi on Friday. De Kock remained unbeaten on 78 off 44, smashing 9 fours and three sixes to win the Man of the Match award as well.

De Kock revealed that he was determined to bat till the end which he failed to do in their last game against Delhi Capitals, falling for 53.

"Those leg-side shots are just one of the shots I have in my armoury. I don't plan to do that, it is just natural. It is just about keeping my balance and playing them as I see them," he said in the post-match presentation. "Last game I was disappointed I didn't finish the game. Mahela had a couple of words with us. So I had to rectify that. Mahela can come hard at you if you do something ordinary."
However, De Kock had dropped Pat Cummins while keeping, which saw KKR put up a decent total of 148.

"I have played this game enough to know you can't do anything about it if you drop one. You have to carry on and do the best for your team. I am a better keeper than that, and don't drop catches on purpose so that is nothing to worry about," he said.

With six wins from eight games, Mumbai Indians are currently placed at the top of the points table. They will next take on Kings XI Punjab on Sunday (October 18) in Dubai.
