News from the Cricket South Africa (CSA), left-handed wicket-keeper batsman Quin De Kock has been named captain of the longest format of the game for season 2020-21. He already has the responsibilities of limited-overs formats and now he has given a temporary template for captaining in test format.

Quinton is happy to continue, Alger, Markram, and Maharaj in the race

Quinton De Kock’s appointment as a captain was confirmed on Friday. Graeme Smith believes that Quinton has already a huge amount of responsibility on his shoulder and it is necessary to remain him fresh. But now, he will captain the team in all formats of the game.

Though he has to deal with a relatively light test schedule which has been set by CSA for this summer and the selection committee has faith in De Kock that he will manage the team. South Africa has to play seven tests in the summer which are part of the Test Cricket Championship. South Africa will play two matches against Sri Lanka, the same against Pakistan, and then a tough clash with Australia. 

The CSA tweeted officially,

The team has no test between March and December, and the CSA committee is hoping to get a long-term captain in this period. According to CSA, De Kock has shown the willingness for the captaincy after Faf Du Plessis left a void. Currently, he is the right choice.

Victor Mptisang conveyer of the selectors said in the press that Quinton is happy and willing to do captaincy. He has made them assured that he can handle the workload for the upcoming summer and they back him as captain.

Well, I know you all have some questions about the appointment of De Kock like why only he? Victor has its answer. He said that appointment was not because of time constraints but due to a lack of options. They do not have stand-proof candidates for the job. Though Aiden Markram, Dean Alger, Temba Bavuma, and Keshav Maharaj have shown their interest in the position. They all somewhere lacked for that. Choosing them will be like playing a gamble!

Alger has the advantage of being a senior player and has that experience of 63 matches to become the captain but his performance gets affected due to that. It has been seen when he was made captain in 2017.

Markram is dealing with injuries. He wasn’t part of the whole summer due to a broken finger. He just needs consistency to become a captain. The same can be said for Bavuma. Maharaj is not even a permanent member of the team. He is included in the team for subcontinent tours.


Well, De Kock has made great results in limited over cricket for South Africa and is the perfect choice for me. In my point, he should be given the longer format and limited formats should be handover to someone else. What do you think? Share with us.
