#4 Quinton de Kock

de Kock can tear the opposition bowlers to shreds on his day

South Africa’s Quinton de Kock is easily one of the most talented young batsmen in the cricketing world today. The left-handed batsman has not taken much time to settle down at the top level and has been particularly brilliant in the ODI format.

de Kock is just 23 at present but has already amassed close to 3000 runs in 67 matches at a highly impressive average of 44.76. He also has a terrific conversion rate in terms of centuries as he has scored 11 of them compared to his 8 half-centuries.

Just a week ago, the prolific southpaw smashed his highest ODI score of 178 in a match against Australia. The innings came during a run chase of 296 and de Kock took just 113 balls to score his runs before being dismissed in the 34th over.

If Quinton de Kock can progress at this rate in a match where South Africa are batting first and then go on to bat for 50 overs, he may actually end up scoring 300, let alone cross Rohit Sharma’s score of 264.
