Duminy will retire from ODI cricket after the World Cup


Cape Town – JP Duminy confirmed that he will withdraw from YOU HATE cricket after the completion of 2019 World Cup in England.

The 34-year-old, who has 193 ODI to his name, has just returned to the field after a long series of back injuries.

However, it is expected to be part of the 15-man team that will have the task of winning the first World Cup for South Africa.

The news was confirmed on Friday.

Duminy, like Imran Tahir who announced his retirement from ODI cricket last week, will still be available for Proteas cricket in T20.

It means that Duminy will play in his last ODI in South Africa in his homeland of Newlands, on Saturday, when the Proteas will conquer Sri Lanka in the fifth and final ODI.

"The last few months on the sidelines have given me the opportunity to re-evaluate my career by going ahead and drawing some goals that I would like to achieve in the future," said Duminy.

"I will still be available to play international and national T20 cricket, but I would also like to invest more time in my growing family, which is my number one priority.

"I had the privilege of living my dream playing a sport I love, and I am eternally grateful for the support I received from my teammates, coaches, family, friends and fans over the years."

Duminy scored 5 047 ODI runs on average 37.38 while it also chipped with 68 wickets.
