The inaugural edition of the CSA’s SA20 League is all set to commence in January 2023 & all the franchisees are trying their best to equip their teams with the best players. And in one such attempt, Durban Super Giants has named Quinton De Kock as captain for the inaugural edition of the SA20 League.
Quinton De Kock an Integral Player of Proteas Squad
Quinton De Kock is one of the Key Players of the South African cricket team. His attacking batting approach at the top order makes him one of the best players in the T20 format. He has amassed 8497 runs at an average of 33 & a strike rate of 138 in the T20I format. Additionally, he carries a rich experience of captaining having led the Proteas side in four tests, eight ODIs & 11 T20Is. He is also a part of the Lucknow Super Giants team in IPL, the franchise which owns the Durban team in the SA20 league.
Playing for LSG in IPL 2022, De Kock had a memorable experience amassing 508 runs at a strike rate of nearly 150. He continued his good run in the CPL 2022 as well by scoring 221 runs at a strike rate of nearly 130. However, he couldn’t continue the same performance in the Hundred 2022 & failed to accelerate runs in the crucial T20 World Cup 2022 also. The settled South African team succumbed in front of Netherlands all-round performance in the last fixture of their league stage resulting in their elimination from the marquee event. Now heaidng into the much-awaited SA20 league De Kock will try his best to up his game & bounce back to scoring terms.
Meanwhile, in 2021, De Kock retired from Test cricket due to issues in playing all formats of the game. So while the rest of the players will be preparing for the South Africa Test tour of Australia in December, De Kock will be free to focus & prepare for the SA20 league.
At Durban Kock will have the company of Keshav Maharaj, Jason Holder & lance Klusener who would help him to take the side ahead toward success. Durban Super Giants will begin their campaign on January 11 with a fixture against the Johannesburg Super Kings team.
