Johannesburg: South African international cricketer, Quinton De Kock would take time off from cricket for a few weeks and skip a forthcoming domestic Twenty20 tournament on medical advice.

As per details, the player acknowledged last month that he was feeling the strain of living in bio-secure bubbles which are a reality for international cricketers during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Chief executive of the South Africa Cricketers' Association (SACA), Andrew Breetzke has stated that the SACA will continue to support him.

De Kock  was declared South Africa's cricketer of the year in 2020.

He returned to South Africa from Pakistan last week after leading his team in two losing Test matches.

During the Test matches, he struggled as a batsman and was criticized for his captaincy.

He stressed that he had mixed feelings about touring Pakistan because of the frustrations of being confined to a bio-secure environment.

However, all the T20 matches will be played in Durban between February 19 and 29.
