Quinton de Kock IPL

South Africa’s all-format captain Quinton de Kock has been the batting mainstay for Mumbai Indians for several years. In fact, he was the leading run-scorer for his club in the last season. Nonetheless, the MI team management will have a tough time in the IPL 2022 auction.


While retaining their core part of the group like captain Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah, and Pollard, the defending champions might release the South African stalwart. De Kock has a lot of weapons in his arsenal as he can bat and keep the wickets.

He can surely make a difference as a captain for his new team. Moreover, he has a plethora of experience in skippering his national cricket team across formats. He has good experience in playing 47 T20I games with an average of over 30. With all these qualities, he can be a potential contender for leading the new side in the next season.
