- Quinton de Kock
The explosive left-handed batsmen and wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock will play a key role coming at number 6. In 2017, he scored 619 runs from 12 matches (19 innings) with an average 36.41. His best score in test matches during 2017 was 101 against Sri Lanka. He can change the course of the game with his stroke play.
With a career record of 99 catches and 7 stumpings, Quinton de Kock would play a key role behind the stumps in guiding the bowlers on line and length of the bowl. If Quinton can do well both with the wickets and batting coming lower down the order, South Africa has the advantage to win test series.
