The fealrless strikeman of South African team, Quinton de Kock, has been often compared to stalwarts of cricket like Adam Gilchrist and Makr Boucher. His swiftness with his glove-work have earned him much praise. He has the record for the most immediate centuries in ODIs. In his 22nd year, he was already a favorite in all th three formats of cricket.
Had his father not pursuaded him to pursue a career in cricket, de Kock would be a baseball player by now. We cannot thank de Kock’s dad enough for bringning out the cricketer in him! He went to King Edward VII High School, the alma mater of Graeme Smith and Neil McKenzie, and was selected for the South African Under-19 side. He was asked to focus more on his batting side. Hence, was removed from the captaincy. It gave better results as South Africa's batting charts with 284 runs from six matches at 47.33 and a best of 126.
