IND vs SA: Is Quinton de Kock Playing Today? Here’s the update


Quinton de Kock IND vs SA: Without much of doubt, the visiting South African team have been too good for India in the ongoing five-match T20I series. The Temba Bavuma-led Proteas side went on to register sensational back-to-back victories in the first two T20I matches against India and the visitors have a 2-0 lead in the five-match series. South Africa will now be hoping to seal this India T20I series in their favour during the third T20I game on 14 June, 2022 at the Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium in Visakhapatnam.

IND vs SA: Is Quinton de Kock Playing Today? Here’s the update

Ahead of the third T20I encounter against India, the South Africa team management will be stressing on the availability of their premier wicket-keeper batsman Quinton de Kock who missed the second game. De Kock suffered a hand injury which ruled him out of the 2nd T20I match. Even though the left-handed opener scored 22 runs in the first game but his experience and record against India in limited-overs format is very much vital for the Proteas.

Quinton is expected to be back straightaway in the South Africa playing 11 for the third match against India on Tuesday if he is fully fit.
