A Pakistani fascinated by De Cock’s ‘smartness’

The game ended last night. But the remnants of the second match of the Pakistan-South Africa ODI series still remain. Resh is not really the whole match, but a moment of the match. To put it more clearly, Pakistan opener Fakhar Zaman’s run out in the last over. The debate over the runout is still ongoing. Many former Pakistan cricketers could not accept this runout.

After the match, former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar said that South African wicketkeeper-batsman Quinton de Kock had acted against the spirit of cricket. But the on-field umpires did not see any ‘mistake’ in de Kock. However, the Pakistanis are raising questions about De Kock’s case. Walker Younis, the team’s bowling coach, questioned De Cock’s ‘smile to Mitch’ after the run-out.

But former Pakistan spinner Danish Kaneria sees no fault in de Kock. He would rather call De Cock a ‘smart’ cricketer! Kaneria is impressed with the ‘smartness’ shown by De Kock in running out Fakhar Zaman.

Fakhar Zaman was run out for 193 in the second ODI of the series which was lost by 16 runs. Pakistani supporters and former claim, Fakhr has been cheated! De Kock has resorted to ‘fake fielding’ to get him out. Fakhar was running for the second run from the first ball of the last over. The South African wicketkeeper asked the fielder to point the finger and throw at the non-striking edge in the face. Seeing that, Fakhar slowed down a bit, as he was running towards the batting end. But the fielder’s throw comes close to the wicketkeeper and when Fakhar realizes that, he is far away. It takes a direct throw to the stumps.

Former Pakistan cricketers and supporters have questioned De Kock’s behavior, but Fakhar blamed himself for being run out at the post-match press conference. Speaking of which, teammate Harris Rauf forgot to run fast to see if he could reach his end properly! Despite Fakhr’s remarks, Pakistan’s former veterans continue to question De Kock’s behavior. At that time, one of the former cricketers of Pakistan stood by Kaneria de Kock!

Many former Pakistan cricketers now have their own YouTube channels. Kaneria is no exception. Kaneria has spoken about the issue on his own YouTube channel. Before speaking, he showed the audience the three rules of MCC on fake fielding. He then said he didn’t think Proteas had broken a wicketkeeper’s rule. Kaneria seems to have been very clever in deafening Fakhar Zaman.

Explaining the whole thing, Kaneria said, ‘Quinton de Kock ran to the stumps. He then looks at bowler Lungi Ngidi. NGD was then waiting to catch the ball coming from the fielder at the other end. Seeing this, Zaman turned around and tried to see the position of Harris Rauf. Trying to figure out if he could reach safely. He has been fooled in the whole process and he is out. So he could not make a double century. ‘

Kaneria then spoke about whether the rules were broken or not, saying, “Basically, no ICC rules were broken in this case.” I think that’s what a smart cricketer like him (De Cock) does. We have seen in the past what players do when they fool someone out. ‘
