The highly-rated wicket-keeper-batsman knows that his side needs to improve ahead of the 1st ODI clash with the Baggy Greens.
"It's just another blowout. Obviously, it's not good enough doing it twice in one series," De Kock said.
"We are going to have to have a good look at ourselves and ask some honest questions.
"I am still taking it in my stride. I am still learning.  There's a lot of things that I didn't see when I was just a normal player," he added.
"Now I am seeing things and learning about the game and the thinking behind decisions.
"I am asking a lot of advice from Faf. I hope I can get better and put the results on the board."
