Proteas wicketkeeper-batsman Quinton de Kock will retire from ODI cricket after the 2023 World Cup.
Since making his ODI debut in 2013, the 30-year-old has scored 5,966 runs in 140 matches at an average of 44.85, including a career-best 178 against Australia in Centurion in 2016.
De Kock, who has signed a contract to play in Australia’s Big Bash League in December, captained the Proteas ODI team from 2020 to 2021.
“Quinton de Kock has been a really good servant to South African cricket,” said CSA director of cricket Enoch Nkwe.
“He set the benchmark with his attacking batting style and was a key member of the squad for a number of years. He also wore the captain’s armband and that is an honour that very few people get to hold.
“We understand his decision to step back from ODI cricket and we want to thank him for his service over the years. We wish him well for the future but still look forward to seeing him represent the Proteas in T20I cricket.”
