De Kock will move down the order if asked
Quinton de Kock insists that he has is not in competition with Hashim Amla for the opening spot in the Proteas' T20I side and will bat down the order if he is asked to do so.
Proteas captain Faf d Plessis has made it clear that AB de Villiers will walk in at the top of the order in the World T20 leaving Amla and De Kock fighting it out for the remaining spot.
Amla played both games in the recent series against England, with success, while De Kock has been preferred in the two games against Australia.
There is a call that all three batsman should be included in the starting line up with De Kock moving down the order.
The wicketkeeper said of the situation: "I haven't batted down the order in a while. If I were to move I would assess the situation and make sure that the strike-rate is at 100 percent.
"Normally that is how finishers go about their strategy, if it comes my way I will try and get the job done. There isn't any competition. Whoever gets into the position will do the best that is needed for the team.
"We want to try and win a world cup, there isn't any competition, we both just want what is best for the team."
The third and final T20I against Australia takes place at Newlands on Wednesday.
