Quinton De Kock Told Whether He Will Play for South Africa or Not?


Quinton de Kock has apologized: From our captain, fellow players and South African fans. He has also kept his whole talk on not playing the match against West Indies. Quinton de Kock has also told whether he will be seen playing in the next match or not.

On behalf of the South Africa Cricket Board, it was said that all the players would kneel in support of Black Lives Matter. And this thing went unnoticed for Quinton de Kock. They felt that their rights were being taken away. And this work is being done forcibly without asking them.

And for this reason, Quinton de Kock did not come to play the match against West Indies. There was a lot of uproar after this decision of de Kock. It was also believed that Quinton de Kock would not be able to play for South Africa again. But there were talks between the board and de Kock. A mutual agreement was reached. After this, Quinton de Kock gave his side while issuing a statement. And announced to return to the field.


In his statement, Quinton de Kock said

‘I never wanted to make it a ‘Quinton issue’. I know how important it is to stand up to racism. And I also know that we have this responsibility as players. If by my kneeling other people are getting educated and someone’s life is getting better. So I’d be happy to do it.

Quinton De Kock added.

‘I am against racism, and I do not understand what is there to prove by kneeling in it. I learn and love people from all walks of life every day.


Apart from this, Quinton de Kock also revealed that he belongs to a mixed breed family. Her half-sisters are coloured, and her step-mother is Black South African. This wicketkeeper batsman said,

‘Till now, I was silent on this critical issue. But I need to explain myself a little more. I want to tell those who do not know that I come from a mixed-race family. My half-sisters are coloured, and my step-mother is black.

Black Lives Matters for me from birth. Not because it is an international movement. The rights and equality of all people are more important than any individual. I grew up with the understanding that we all have rights and that they are essential’.


Let us tell you that South Africa has played two matches in the Super 12 stage. The team has got one win and one loss. South Africa are fourth in the group with two points. The next match of the African team led by Temba Bavuma is against Sri Lanka. This match will be played on 30 October.
