Duminy’s focus on limited overs
SOUTH Africa batsman JP Duminy has decided to quit Test cricket but will continue to feature in the shorter formats of the game, the 33-yearold said yesterday.
“After long and careful deliberation, I have decided to retire from first-class and Test match cricket with immediate effect,” the lefthander, who scored 2103 runs in 46 Tests, said.
“It is an experience that cannot be replaced and one I will always cherish.
“Test cricket has always been the pinnacle and I’ve been fortunate enough to experience some memorable highlights with the Proteas.”
Duminy made his Test debut in 2008 against Australia.
“In the years ahead, my focus will be … on attaining limited-overs cricket success for South Africa,” he added.
