Kuwait Times - - SPORTS -

JO­HAN­NES­BURG: 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-year-old said in a state­ment yes­ter­day. “Af­ter long and care­ful de­lib­er­a­tion, I have de­cided to re­tire from first-class and test match cricket with im­me­di­ate ef­fect,” the left-han­der, who scored 2,103 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 and also in first-class matches with the WSB Cape Co­bras.” Du­miny, who also bowls off-spin, made his test de­but in 2008 against Aus­tralia in Perth. “In the years ahead, my fo­cus will be placed on at­tain­ing lim­ited-overs cricket suc­cess for South Africa and the WSB Cape Co­bras...” he added. — Reuters
