JP Duminy to retire from ODIs after ICC World Cup 2019

South African all-rounder JP Duminy announced that he would retire from ODIs after the ICC World Cup in England. Duminy will, however, continue to be available for South Africa in T20 internationals.

Duminy, who announced his retirement from Test and first class cricket in 2017, said “the time is right” to close this chapter of his international career.

In a series of tweets by Cricket South Africa, Duminy said “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.”

Duminy further said “I will still be available to play international and domestic T20 cricket, but would also like to invest more time towards my growing family, who are my number one priority.”

Duminy said “I have been privileged to live out my dream playing a sport I love, and I am forever grateful for the support I have received from my team mates, coaches, family, friends and fans throughout the years.”
