De Kock hits third century of the World Cup

De Kock scored the second-highest individual score for South Africa in World Cup cricket. He was unable to surpass Gary Kirsten, who played a record knock of 188* against UAE in the 1996 World Cup.

Quinton smashed 7 sixes and 15 fours in his knock of 174 at the Wankhede Stadium. He has now gotten past Rohit Sharma (311) and Virat Kohli (354) in the list of batters with most runs at the ODI World Cup 2023.
