The coach and Rohit did ask us to come out and be positive: de Kock
Mumbai Indians (MI) opener Quinton de Kock has finally returned in form on Thursday against Rajasthan Royals (RR) in Delhi after a tough Chennai-leg in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL).
De Kock’s unbeaten 70 runs off 50 balls pulled off a comprehensive victory for MI over RR by 7 wickets. Before yesterday’s match, the South African managed to score just 47 runs in 4 matches.
After the match, the wicket-keeper batsman revealed his conversation with the coach Mahela Jayawardene and captain Rohit Sharma which helped him to come back in form again and played a super innings against RR.
“To be totally honest it’s a better wicket than Chennai in general, it just came on better. We spoke about it, the coach and Rohit did ask us to come out and be positive today and that’s what we did. [I] enjoyed getting the team to the end, I don’t do that often. I just came out and tried to be positive, that’s what the coach said and I said sign me up, I want to be positive. There’s a way of going about it. Obviously, I’ve played enough to know how to go about it,” said de Kock.
Defending champions Mumbai Indians are currently at fourth in the points table. They will face Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in their next match on May 1.
