    JP Duminy to retire from ODIs after World Cup [post#14]

    Media Advisory: Statement on behalf of JP Duminy

    Saturday, 16 September 2017

    After long and careful deliberation, I have decided to retire from first-class and Test match cricket with immediate effect. I have thoroughly enjoyed the privilege and opportunity to represent my country in 46 Tests and the WSB Cape Cobras in 108 first-class matches overs the past 16 years. It is an experience that cannot be replaced and one I will always cherish. Test cricket has always been the pinnacle and Iíve been fortunate enough to experience some memorable highlights with the Proteas and also in first-class matches with the WSB Cape Cobras. In recent years I have been privileged to be a senior member and custodian of a special team environment and culture which has made me very proud.

    In the years ahead, my focus will be placed on attaining limited-overs cricket success for South Africa and the WSB Cape Cobras, along with attending to my young family, who have been incredibly supportive and understanding. I will however not be lost to first-class cricket; I have offered my services to the WSB Cape Cobras and the coaching staff as a mentor/consultant and will be involved as they see fit. There are many talented youngsters coming through our domestic system and I would love to help where I can. Iíve had the privilege of working with the squad in this role over the last two weeks and I have thoroughly enjoyed it.

    I certainly know that my playing career is far from over and my hope is that with the backing of Cricket South Africa, WSB Cape Cobras, team mates, family, friends and supporters, I will be given the opportunity to continue to give my very best to the sport that I love dearly.

    Yours in Sport
    JP Duminy

    JP had a lot of talent but in the end he flattered to deceive. This is no loss to the test team.

    Had a good start to Test Cricket and always seemed to perform against Australia but has never seemed to prove his case at a significant level for a prolonged period of time and won't really be missed as a player at the highest level of the game. Still had his highlights and has had his time in the sun too.


    Politics trumps intelligence (pun intended).

    Not good enough in tests. He can now focus on ODIs and T20Is where he can be more than handy

    I remember when JP first came onto the scene, had a 50 FC average and everyone was talking about how talented this guy is.

    Don't really know what happened along the way, the guy didn't live up to expectations.

    Good luck on his LOIs career.

    He was awful in tests. South Africa can finally have a batsmen who deserves to be in there rather than someone playing on potential.

    Standard Bank Proteas all-rounder, JP Duminy, will bid farewell to the PPC Newlands faithful when he makes his final home One-Day International (ODI) appearance in the fifth Momentum ODI against Sri Lanka on Saturday. Duminy will retire from the 50-over format after the ICC Cricket World Cup in the UK later this year, but will continue to be available for the Proteas in T20 International (T20I) cricket.

    Duminy, who announced his retirement from Test and First-Class cricket in 2017 to put more focus on his white-ball cricket, feels ‘the time is right’ to close this chapter of his international career. Saturday’s match will be a fitting farewell for a respected and admired servant of the game in front of the avid local fans and at a place he calls home.

    “The last few months on the sidelines have given me an opportunity to re-assess my career going forward and to plot some goals I’d like to achieve in the future,” he said. “While a decision like this is never easy, I also feel that it is the right time for me to pass on the baton. I will still be available to play international and domestic T20 cricket, but would also like to invest more time towards my growing family, who are my number one priority. I have been privileged to live out my dream playing a sport I love, and I am forever grateful for the support I have received from my team mates, coaches, family, friends and fans throughout the years.”

    Quite an underrated and underachieving player for SA.

    Duminy had a knack for breaking partnerships. Sadly, only Biff recognised and used his golden arm to perfection.

    JP Duminy, Imran Tahir so far the only players announced to be retiring after the world cup for South Africa and tbh its not that surprising, South Africa will be looking to rebuild the LOI team after the world cup and players like Duminy, Amla and Tahir will be the first ones to go

    In the AB interview thread, AB mentioned (being close friends with Faf) that Faf might retire after the WC or the T20 WC, as well.

    An end to the great SA era. RIP.

    It is vital that Markram fulfils his potential for SA after their stalwarts retire. So far despite amazing list A performances, he has not been able to convert starts.

    AB, Tahir, Amla, Duminy, Faf, Steyn, Morkel. 7 of the sure starters in the XI are going to leave in a space of 1 year. Not sure if SA will be the same force for next few years atleast.
