It's obvious. Thami Tsolekile is a senior figure within the Lions set-up and is a solid keeper so they won't drop him.
Earlier this season Quinton De Kock took the gloves v the Dolphins on a Wanderers deck darting around a bit and did well. In fact go to the 2nd innings and look at the commentary on the dismissals of David Miller & Cody Chetty.

Then he kept brilliantly at the u19 WC against our pace attack and our classy spinner Prenelan Subrayen. See some good stumpings off Subrayen.
