As per the World Cup 2023 schedule, South Africa will play their first game against Sri Lanka on October 7 at Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi.

Notably, the World Cup 2023 in India will be his last assignment in ODI format. De Kock had retired from the Test format in a shock decision in December last year after the birth of his daughter.

Confirming the development, Proteas on Twitter (X) said, “Quinton de Kock has announced his retirement from ODI cricket following the conclusion of the ICC @cricketworldcup in India.”

De Kock, who has signed up by the Melbourne Renegades for the Big Bash League, is scheduled to participate in the tournament that overlaps with the India series slated from December 10-21.
