Quinton De Kock To Retire From ODIs After World Cup

Prolific South African wicket-keeper Quinton de Kock has confirmed that he will retire from the 50-over game after the upcoming World Cup in India, starting from October 5 to November 19.

The 30-year-old made his ODI debut in 2013 and has featured in 140 matches. The celebrated batter has amassed 5966 ODI runs to his name at an average of 44.85, with 17 100s and 29 half-centuries.

De Kock has also 197-wickets – 183 catches and 14 stumpings- in the format as a wicket-keeper.

“Quinton de Kock has been a really good servant to South African cricket. He set the benchmark with his attacking batting style and as a key member of the squad for a number of years. He also wrote the captain’s armband and this is honour that very few people get to hold,” SA Director of Cricket Enoch Nkwe said.

During his illustrious career in the 50-over format, De Kock became the fourth fastest batter to get 1000 runs in (21 innings). He scored his career-best knock in Centurion -178 against Australia in 2016.

He also led side in 2020-21. De Kock retired from the Test cricket in 2021. He will continue to give his service in the T20 format.
