Protea All-rounder Jean-Paul Duminy, whos’ recently retired from test cricket, has said that he had a hunch that his test career was over two months before he took the decision. Duminy’s final test was a forgetful one against England where he scored 15 & 2 as England beat South Africa by a mammoth 211-run margin.
Duminy believes the pressure was mounting on him with various players in competition against him for a spot in the playing XI. His consistency didn’t help much as he didn’t score a half-century in his last 10 innings.
Times are not being kind to him with the postponement of the T-20 Global league set to commence in South Africa. Duminy was set to captain the Cape Town Knight Riders. He was understandably gutted with the decision. He said, “It’s disappointing for both South African & International cricket. I hope they can come to a consensus for going forward with the project”.
Duminy will take part against Bangladesh in a warm-up match with the South African Invitation XI today (October 12).
