Quinton de Kock (South Africa) (wk)
Quinton de Kock has always been known as a fearless striker of the ball. Also, his glovework behind the stumps has been handy, making him a reliable player for the Proteas. The wicketkeeper-batsman also won the ICC ODI cricketer of the year award for his consistent performance during the qualification period of the ICC.
The elegant left-hander has scored 857 runs this year at a stupendous average of 57.13. Moreover, he has scored runs at a splendid pace with a strike rate of 108.61, turning matches in South Africa’s favour with his prodigious hitting. All these factors make de Kock a suitable choice as an opener and Warner’s partner in the XI.
