No Rabada or Pretorious for Sri Lanka Test series, de Kock named Test captain of South Africa

Quinton de Kock has been named South Africa’s Test captain for the 2020/21 season. de Kock, who already leads the ODI and T20I squads, will only be in the role temporarily, with a permanent appointee to be finalised in the coming months […] The Test squad for Sri Lanka has one allrounder in it, in Wiaan Mulder, and Dwaine Pretorius could join if he recovers from a hamstring injury in time, making team balance a little less complicated. And CSA’s interim board have confirmed that the transformation targets will revert to what they were last season, rather than increase, as was originally planned. That means South Africa need to field, on average over the course of a season, six players of colour of which a minimum of two must be black African. Call it politics or call it necessity, that is what every South African must learn to work with, and de Kock is no different. Welcome to it…

  1. SA wanted to bury us at home after their humiliation in SL but things just didn’t work out for them and SL pulled out one of the all time great test series wins. SA still desperately want to thrash us and surprised to see them rest Rabada who is the leader of the pack and good news for us.

    I wouldn’t have picked De Kock as the obvious choice but Elga who is experienced and has led the team before. SA have issues but money on SA at home and looking for SL to pull off another surprise in South Africa.
