After playing a crucial part in the Mumbai Indians winning their fifth Indian Premier League in 2020, South African wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock will once again be one of the team’s figureheads in this year’s edition.
This will be De Kock’s eighth season in the IPL and his third as a member of the successful Mumbai Indians squad.
The left-hander made his debut back in 2013 when he played for the Sunrisers Hyderabad, but took a while to get going in the IPL. It was only when he joined the Delhi Daredevils that he started finding his feet in the competition.
Since playing for the Mumbai Indians, though, De Kock has matured into one of the leaders in the team and can be highly destructive at the top of the order.
He has formed a brilliant opening combination with India big-hitter Rohit Sharma, who is also the captain of the team.
