At the World Sports Betting Cape Cobras Awards ceremony for 2018/19 season on Friday night, coach Ashwell Prince announced the retirement of JP Duminy from domestic cricket.
Duminy’s career in professional cricket started at only 16 years old playing for Western Province.
In 2003 he made a breakthrough into the Cape Cobras/Western Province Boland. In his debut season, he averaged over 72 runs with the bat.
His performance in the 2003-04 season caught the eyes of the national selectors which led to an ODI debut in 2004 against Sri Lanka. In List A he has played 269 matches accumulating over 7000 runs at an average of 38.78 with a top score of 150*. In T20 cricket, he managed to score 6,106 runs at an average of 37.46 in 252 matches and a top score of 99*.
In First Class cricket, he has made just under 7000 runs in 108 matches at an average of 46 and a top score of 260*. JP has featured in domestic T20 leagues around the world including the Indian Premier League(IPL) and the Pakistan Super League(PSL).
Duminy has already announced his retirement from ODI cricket after the world cup in England. He will, however, aim to play for the Proteas in the shortest format at the T20 world cup in Australia in 2020.
The 35-year-old has still made himself available for T20 competitions around the world including the Mzansi Super League.
