Quinton De Kock was born in Johannesburg, Transvaal, South Africa, on 17 December 1992. He grew up playing baseball and dreamed of moving to the United States to play the game. However, his father convinced him to practice cricket instead. It turned out to be the course of his destiny. He attended King Edward VII School in Johannesburg, where he honed his cricket skills. Legendary cricket players Graeme Smith and Neil Mckenzie went to the same school. He was spotted as a schoolboy talent. De Kock used to play for the affiliate club Old Eds.
About his debut, he said, “Morgs wanted me to make the step up to professional cricket, and I told him if he could get me out of school, I was in.”
He also spoke about a conversation with his school headmaster. “It was a long discussion about my future, but my decision was already made up. I was offered a contract that would make any 17-year-old’s eyes water. My parents were on board, and we decided to pull the plug on school and invest everything I had in cricket. I have no regrets. Things have turned out all right.”
De Kock stated in a 2019 interview with The Cricket Monthly that he isn’t a fan of books. He said, “Me and books don’t get along. I didn’t need school or university to get where I am today. We joke in the dressing room that I might not have graduated from high school, but I have a master’s degree in cricket.”

She cheered in a Champions League T20 match between Mumbai Indians and Highveld Lions in 2012. Quinton contacted Sasha through social media, and soon, the couple started dating each other. The couple welcomed their first child, a daughter named Kiara, in January 2022.
In a statement to Hindustan Times, De Kock said, “After the game, she came up and congratulated me. Later, I thanked her back over Facebook. As we started talking, it just clicked. I didn’t think it could start on the field.” He revealed that they kept their relationship away from the public eye before finally deciding to get married.
Since their marriage in 2016, she has been a regular at all IPL tournaments with her husband, Quinton. She is also regarded as one of the strongest pillars of support in his career.
