Quinton de Kock has achieved more things in his cricket life by the age of 20 than a lot of cricketers achieve in an entire career. He has been the stand-out batsman for the South Africa under-19 side for the past couple of years and the fact that he can hold down a place as a specialist batsman in the top three regardless of his considerable wicketkeeping skills has created early opportunities for him at franchise level as well.

He played a remarkable innings of 194 (out of a second innings total of 339) for the bizhub Highveld Lions against the powerful Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras in the Sunfoil Series at the start of the 2012/13 season. This is his highest first-class innings to date. He followed this with the highest T20 innings in South African franchise cricket of 126 not out, again against the Cobras.

He made another century in the Momentum One-Day Cup off only 71 balls, a competition in which he played an important role in getting the bizhub Highveld Lions to the Final with an average of 32 and a strike rate in excess of 100. He finished the season by being named Master Blaster in the final of the RAM SLAM T20 Challenge in the successful Lions winning team.

He made his T20 debut against New Zealand at the end of 2012 and was subsequently named in the ODI squad as well. He made a major breakthrough with his maiden ODI century in the away series against Pakistan in 2013.

Las year he had a record-breaking ODI series against India in which he became the fifth player to score three successive centuries in this format and became the second player to score four ODI centuries before his 21st birthday.

He subsequently made his Test debut in the 2014 home series against Australia.
