Durban’s Super Giants skipper Quinton de Kock was elated with the new responsibility and admitted that he is looking forward to the unexpected.

“Pretty much it’s a new tournament, so, I guess looking forward to the unexpected, we’ve had a couple of these tournaments, and there hasn’t been one in a while. A lot of youngsters who haven’t been part of the big tournament will be involved in this, so it will be good for the new guys and obviously for the guys who’ve been around in serving cricket.

“This is also new for us, so, this would be amazing another new comp, so I can’t wait,” said de Kock, speaking in an interview with the SA20 League.

The Durban’s Super Giants is owned by the RPSG group who even owns the Lucknow Super Giants in the Indian Premier League (IPL). De Kock represents LSG in the IPL after being bought in the auction last year. He has been retained by the team for the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League. He was an integral part of the franchise in their journey to the playoffs.
