Quinton De Kock Announced Retirement

South African wicket-taker Quinton de Kock announced he had stopped playing Test cricket immediately on Thursday. The announcement comes after South Africa’s defeat in the first Test match against India at Centurion, where the visitors won by 113 runs and took a 1-0 lead in a three-match series.

De Kock, 29, played his first Test match against Australia in Port Elizabeth in 2014. In 54 games, he has hit 3300 runs and 141 high points without conceding, with an average of 38.82 and a strike rate of 70.93. He is also six hundred and a half years old in the 22nd century under his belt.


Quinton De Kock Said that “I love Test cricket and I love representing my country and everything it comes with. I enjoyed the ups and downs, the celebrations and even the disappointments, but now I have found something I love even more. “In life, you can buy almost anything without time, and right now, it’s time to do the right thing for the people who mean the most to me.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has been a part of my Test cricket journey from the beginning. To my coaches, teammates, various management teams and my family and friends – I would not have come as I did without your support.

“This is not the end of my career as Protea, I am fully committed to white cricket and represent my country to the best of my ability in the future.“I wish you all the best for the rest of the season in this Test series against India.”We’ll see you in the ODIs and T20s,” he concluded.
