Kock’s South Africa starter withdraws from T20 World Cup match due to ‘personal reasons’

South Africa starter Quinton de Kock is withdrawing from the T20 World Cup match against the West Indies due to ‘personal reasons’ … just HOURS after they were ordered to kneel by their board of directors for the remainder of the tournament.

South Africa goalkeeper Quinton de Kock was unavailable for South Africa’s T20 World Cup match against the West Indies, just hours after their board told them to kneel for the remainder of the tournament.

Cricket South Africa was forced to react after the team chose different methods to support the Black Lives Matter movement before their loss to Australia.

Some on Proteas’s side knelt, while others stood and raised their fists.

That left CSA with no choice but to order all Proteas players to take a coherent and united stance against racism by kneeling before each of their remaining World Cup matches.

But speaking in the draw before Tuesday’s game against Kieron Pollard’s men, captain Temba Bavuma revealed that the former Kock captain had withdrawn from the game for “personal reasons.”

The Proteas got down on their knees in Dubai before playing the West Indies, but the news about de Kock means Heinrich Klaasen gets the window for South Africa, while Reeza Hendricks has been hired to open batting.

Speaking about the game’s comments, former Zimbabwean international Pommie Mbangwa said: “I can’t get rid of the color of my skin.”

He also spoke of the “need” for South Africa to “at least” be “united” on something that “the world agrees on”, because “this is a country with a history of racism and exclusion.”

Meanwhile, former West Indies SUV Daren Sammy added: “ As my mother always said, you have to stand up for something or you will fall in love with anything. ”

“Sometimes I don’t understand: why is it so difficult to support this movement, if you understand what it represents?”
