 South African white-ball skipper Quinton de Kock feels that he has eased into the captaincy in limited-overs formats.

‘’I took it pretty slow and I am still trying to get a feel of how to go about things. I have learned quite a bit and I didn’t do too badly,” De Kock said through an audio released by Cricket South Africa on Tuesday.

“It was more about taking it step-by-step, not just throwing out what I think straight away to the team. We are busy rebuilding as a limited-overs team, especially ODIs. Twenty20 I think we know what is going on. The series against Australia ... we had quite a young team and they had a powerhouse side, so for us to beat them 3-0 was a highlight,’’ he said.

The wicket-keeper batsman has already taken over leading the side from Faf du Plessis in white-ball cricket, and had a great run with three ODIs and three T20I matches each against England and Australia in the last few months.

South Africa are scheduled to tour the West Indies for two Test and five T20I in this late July and August, but it is currently uncertain as the World Cup in October due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“I’m not sure what will happen, every country has their regulations they must adhere to. It is just a matter of waiting for this to go past and then we can get on with the game again,” De Kock concluded.
