Quinton de Kock believes the Proteas are a new machine after their recent culture camp in Skukuza.
With 32 of the country’s best cricketers pulling together to get a new identity for the national team, limited-overs captain De Kock says: “Everyone is leaving feeling a lot better about the environment and about themselves. A lot of guys got things off their back, it was something that this team needed.
“We feel a lot more comfortable as a team going forward... we’re excited about going into the future now.”
He adds: “We are human and we make mistakes. We’re trying to get better in what we’re doing in our professions, that’s why we got together.
“I can’t promise results but I can promise that we’ll get better and we are learning, which will give us the best chance of getting better results.”
