Centurion: Describing his hundred in the washed out third and final ODI against India as the toughest of the series, young South African batsman Quinton de Kock said his work ethic and confidence has improved manifold in the three matches.

At the SuperSport Park, in skipper AB de Villiers' company, he scored his third successive ton in the series and took South Africa to 301 for 8, before incessant rain didn't allow India to reply.

"It was a tough wicket to bat on. We had to fight for runs and the scoring was tough after we lost quick wickets. So probably it was one of the harder hundreds in these last three," said the man-of-the-series.
