Mumbai – South African wicketkeeper-batsman Quinton de Kock has announced his retirement from Test cricket. De Cock, 29, made the announcement after South Africa’s defeat to India in the Centurion Test. India beat the hosts by 113 runs at Centurion to take a 1-0 lead in the 3-Test series.

New guests are coming to Dick’s family this week. He wanted to spend more time with his family, so he decided to say goodbye to the red ball format. Earlier, it was reported that De Kock wanted to be with his wife Sasha when his first child was born, so he could not play in the second and third Tests against India.

The left-arm batsman made his Test debut in 2014 against Australia. Since then, he has played a total of 54 Test matches, including 3330 runs at an average of 38.82. This time, he also scored 6 centuries and 22 half centuries. This great player took a total of 232 wickets with 221 catches and 11 stumpings behind the wickets.

De Cock, who announced his retirement from Test cricket, said: “It was not a decision I made too easily. With this decision, I thought a lot about my future and what my priorities are in life. Now my wife Sasha and I are bringing our first child into this world and now we want to take our family forward. My family is everything to me and I need time to be with her.
