South Africa's Duminy to retire after ICC World Cup

South Africa

NEW DELHI: South Africa all-rounder JP Duminy on Friday has announced his intention to retire from One-day International after the ICC World Cup, which starts in England and Wales on May 30.

The 34-year-old, who announced his retirement from Tests in September 2017, will continue being available for South Africa in T20 Internationals.

“The last few months on the sidelines have given me an opportunity to re-assess my career going forward and to plot some goals I'd like to achieve in the future,” said Duminy.

Duminy turned out for South Africa in the fourth ODI against Sri Lanka, returning 1/21 and an unbeaten 31.

This year’s World Cup will be his third appearance at the premier event after the 2011 and 2015 editions. Duminy has played 193 ODIs and scored 5047 runs at 37.39 besides taking 68 wickets.

“I am forever grateful for the support I have received from my team-mates, coaches, family, friends and fans throughout the years,” said Duminy, who will play his last ODI at his home in Newlands, Cape Town, on Saturday. (Source: ICC)
