South Africa batter Janneman Malan has lavished praise on Quinton de Kock and said that the left-handed batsman made it pretty easy for him to score runs during the second ODI against India in Paarl. 

"Quinton made it easy for me at the start. I just tried to give him as much strike as possible because I just wanted to let him go do his thing. He played a couple of ridiculous shots, which are good signs," said Malan.

The two batsmen struck a first-wicket stand of 132 runs with De Kock scoring 78 off 66 and Malan missing out on a hundred by just 9 runs. 

"He is one of the best batters in the world when he gets going, so it was good to bat with him," the right-handed opener added. 

South Africa took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series after winning the second game by 7 wickets while chasing down a target of 288 in just over 48 overs.
