Quinton De Kock's Apology Confuses West Indian Legend Michael Holding

By IANS News October 30, 2021 • 16:47 PM View: 1258

Former West Indies fast bowler Michael Holding has said that South African wicketkeeper-batter Quinton de Kock's decision to withdraw from the team's ICC T20 World Cup match against the West Indies and later, following an uproar, issuing a statement that he was ready to take the knee, had left him confused.

In a reported show of 'defiance', de Kock had withdrawn from the match against West Indies after Cricket South Africa (CSA) issued a directive asking all players to take the knee in support of the 'Black Lives Matter movement'. But later the South African said that he was sorry for "all the hurt, confusion and anger" that his decision had caused and added that he "wasn't a racist" as was being portrayed.
