Five Likely Replacements For Delhi Daredevils Quinton De Kock For IPL 2017
Delhi Daredevils recently dealt a colossal blow as their star wicketkeeper-batsman Quinton De Kock was ruled out due to an injury. The South African run machine sustained an injury to his right index finger during the recently concluded Test series in New Zealand and despite playing the final test amidst great agony, he was ruled out of the IPL.
In a bid to remain fit for the all important ICC Champions Trophy, De Kock will skip this year’s IPL.
This means that the Daredevils will be on the lookout for someone explosive like the southpaw. The think tank could have straightaway looked at dynamic England opener Alex Hales, but the fact that De Kock doubles up as a keeper doesn’t help Hales.
The Daredevils have a few wicketkeepers in the ranks such as Sam Billings, Rishab Pant and Sanju Samson, but none of them are full-time keepers.
Thereby, we have a look at the five wicket-keeper batsmen, who could possibly replace Quinton De Kock for the tenth edition of the IPL.
