“Good wicket, I had to capitalise when I could. I was waiting for a chance like this, hoping a day like this would come,” said a visibly tired Quinton de Kock after blasting a 51-ball 108 for Delhi Daredevils against the mighty Royal Challengers Bangalore.

The 23-year-old South African wicket-keeper batsman smashed the first hundred of IPL 9 to take his team to a first win over RCB since 2010. And how did his teammates repay him? 

b’De Kock on his way to a hundred, and some puns. IPL’

With #deKockPuns of course. It seems it was not Quniton who was waiting for a chance like this.

After the match-winning knock, de Kock’s Delhi teammates Chris Morris, Carlos Brathwaite and Sam Billings took to Twitter to congratulate him in their own way.

To which the fans responded with some puns of their own.

There was the *other* Kock pun too, this one a cartoon.

The puns were Srini Mama approved as well.

Do we feel sorry for the guy? Come on, it’s hard not to!
