Dream ODI XI of 2016: A Galaxy of Stars


2. Quinton de Kock (South Africa) (WK) – 857 runs, Avg: 57.13, S/R – 108.61

Quinton de KockDubbed as the next big thing in South Africa, Quinton de Kock is going from strength to strength in all the formats. Kock is a very positive sort of player, always looking to score runs and keep the scoreboard ticking. This year, the Proteas gloveman played some absolute blinders. He started off the year with a bang against England, when he hammered 138* runs (12×4, 6×6) in a losing cause. And from there on, there has been no looking back for South Africa’s young gun.

The southpaw also blasted his career-best;178 runs (16×4, 11×6) off 113 deliveries against Australia and at a point of time, there were chances of him making a double ton as well, but it wasn’t to be. All in all, Kock is going very well in ODIs and can go miles considering his young age and enormous talent.
