|DOB||17 December 1992|
The young South African wicket-keeper batsman from Gauteng has evoked excitement ever since he was a schoolboy. For starters, he went to the same school as Graeme Smith and Neil McKenzie and was earmarked for big things like his predecessors. He captained the South Africa Under-19 team for a while before being released of the burden to concentrate on his batting. In the 2012 Under-19 Cricket World Cup, he emerged as the team’s best batsman with 284 runs in six matches at an average of 48.33. Quinton’s unbeaten 51 in a match-winning partnership with McKenzie for the Lions against Mumbai Indians in the Champions League T20 2012 earned him recognition among the IPL teams, which subsequently led to his recruitment by the Sunrisers Hyderabad during the 2013 IPL Player Auction. However, the Daredevils picked him up ahead of the 2014 seasons and he will continue to represent the franchise in 2016.
