It is no secret that Cricket South Africa looks towards wicket-keeper batsman Quinton de Kock as their future leader. In fact, the aggressive cricketer was recently given the reins of the T20I team for the series against India. In the absence of Faf du Plessis, de Kock lead from the front to help South Africa level the 2-game series 1-1.
Recently, the 26-year old faced a question about getting a permanent captain position and de Kock embraced it with both hands. He didn’t shy away from calling T20I captaincy ‘Faf’s baby’, but remained open to take up the challenge if needs be.
Highlighting the importance of the upcoming T20 World Cup, the dexterous batsman added that his focus lies on helping the new recruits so the team could be in its best shape to win the mega-event in Australia.
The Johannesburg born boasts a fine batting record in T20I cricket, scoring 1018 runs at 30.84 with a strike-rate of approximately 130. It remains to be seen who leads South Africa in the T20 World Cup.
