Duminy’s fo­cus on lim­ited overs

NT News - - CRICKET -

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.
