Quinton de Kock, the South African wicketkeeper-batsman, has announced his immediate retirement from Test cricket. India won the first Test of the three-match series against South Africa by 113 runs in Centurion on Thursday. De Kock announced his retirement from Test cricket in a statement posted by Cricket South Africa (CSA) on Thursday. “It wasn’t an easy decision for me to make.” I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about what my future holds and what needs to take precedence in my life now that. Sasha and I are expecting our first child and want to expand our family. My family means the world to me, and I wouldn’t be where I am now without them.
“My family means the world to me, and I want to have the time and space to be with them as we embark on this new and exciting chapter of our lives,” De Kock said.
“I enjoy Test cricket and everything that comes with it, as well as representing my nation.” I’ve enjoyed the highs and lows, the joys and sorrows, and even the disappointments, but now I’ve discovered something even better.
“Almost everything in life can be bought but time, and right now, it’s time to do right by the people that matter the most to me.”
“I’d like to take this occasion to express my gratitude to everyone who has supported me throughout my Test cricket career.” I couldn’t have performed as well as I did without the help of my coaches, teammates, management teams, and family and friends.
“This does not signal the end of my Proteas career; I am totally committed to white ball cricket and representing my country to the best of my ability for the foreseeable future.”
