‘Quinton de Kock a proven T20 match-winner’

“Quinton de Kock is a proven match-winner who has delivered for both his country and all the franchises he’s played for around the world, and we are delighted that he’s chosen the Royals as the team to start his CPL journey at,” said Royals coach Trevor Penney.

“On the other hand, having worked closely with David Miller and Corbin Bosch at the Rajasthan Royals [in the IPL], we know exactly what they bring to the table and, at the same time, they also understand the philosophy of the Royals perfectly.”
