Rassie van der Dussen also said that no one is angry with Quinton De Kock because of his behavior.
De Kock did not play in South Africa’s T20 World Cup match against the West Indies after opting not to take a knee in support of the Black Lives Matter Movement.
And De Kock’s choice has grabbed the spotlight in the cricket world. De Kock then apologized, saying that he didn’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings by refusing to take a knee.
The Proteas will welcome Quinton De Kock back with open arms, according to South African batsman Rassie van der Dussen. Van der Dussen also said that De Kock is one of the top players in the world and that no one has any qualms about De Kock’s behavior.
“Quinny is one of the best players in the world. The team will welcome him back with open arms. It is not even a case of him having to ask us. We understood what he did. If he is selected, which I am sure he will be, he will come back like nothing ever happened. Nobody holds any grievances,” said Rassie van der Dussen.
“Quinny is remorseful, and I can say that in a positive way. Even though he took that decision, everyone understood why he took that decision and we supported him even though the timing wasn’t great the whole day, and it was a bit chaotic to the match, but we all supported him,” concluded van der Dussen.
