14 Feb Proteas were caught off guard concedes de Kock after Sri Lanka boss day 1 in Durban
South Africa wicket-keeper Quinton de Kock conceded they were caught off guard after Sri Lanka enjoyed the better of the opening day of their two-match Test series in Durban yesterday yesterday. The Proteas were reduced to 17 for three early on, before recovering to post 235 at Kingsmead. The tourists then replied by reaching stumps on 49 for one and in the pound seat. De Kock was the saviour of the home side after he smashed 80 off 94 balls, but he conceded afterwards that it was not an ideal start to the game.
