Sport360 - - Rugby Rugby Championship -

South Africa’s JP Du­miny an­nounced his re­tire­ment from Test match and first-class cricket.

The 33-year-old left­handed bats­man and part-time off-spin­ner will con­tinue to play in lim­ited overs cricket both do­mes­ti­cally and in­ter­na­tion­ally, he said in a state­ment.

“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,” said Du­miny. “It is an ex­pe­ri­ence that can­not be re­placed and one I will al­ways cher­ish.” Du­miny hit six Test cen­turies dur­ing his ca­reer and he’s plan­ning on adding to his four in ODIs be­fore hang­ing up his bat. “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 that has been in­cred­i­bly sup­port­ive.”
