JP Duminy embraces short-term role to ‘try and add value wherever I can’ for South Africa


The former South Africa allrounder, who retired two years ago, is a strategic consultant for the team for the T20 World Cup

JP Duminy always wanted to be part of the upcoming T20 World Cup. He will be there, but not in the way he expected.

When Duminy announced his retirement from ODIs in March 2019, he remained available in the shortest format. During that tournament, he changed his mind and opted out of playing altogether. It didn’t take too long for him to find his way back, behind the microphone at first and now, as part of South Africa’s support staff.

“On Sunday, I was packing my bag and I realised I needed to go into the garage and take out my South African blazer and tie. It dawned on me that I didn’t think I would be pulling that out of the cupboard two years after retiring. That was an emotional moment,” Duminy said on Friday. “I was reminiscing on the good times I had when I was playing and how I am now coming back in a different capacity.”
