South Africa wicketkeeper-batsman Quinton de Kock believes his side has the potential to win the upcoming T20 World Cup, starting from October 17 in Oman and UAE.

Proteas are confident after completing three straight T20I series wins over the West Indies, Ireland and Sri Lanka - and their sixth successive triumph in the shortest format. De Kock believes the Proteas are on course to win their first World Cup trophy.

"When it all comes together at that point in time, I'm sure I'll be more excited. I'm definitely waiting for it. My hunger to win a World Cup is there, especially with this team. I've got a great feeling about this team, I think we're heading in the right direction," said De Kock.

He also stated they are ready to put their best foot forward to continue their winning momentum. He feels confident in tackling spin in the UAE as they demonstrated in Sri Lanka on turning tracks.

"There's been some great games but with a lot of disappointment, but it's a big tournament. We're going to give it our best shot, that's for sure. We'll definitely try our hardest and hope the results come our way.

“Hopefully, we take the confidence from this series into the World Cup. The guys have been working hard, not just on this tour. It has been highlighted our play against spin on turning wickets so we've worked really hard," he added.

Proteas clinched the three-match T20 series 2-0 with the dead-rubber scheduled for Tuesday.
