JP Duminy announces retirement from professional cricket after 326 South Africa caps

JP Duminy insists he has no regrets as he heads towards commentary duties following a two-decade playing career

South Africa batsman JP Duminy has announced his retirement from all forms of the game after a playing career that spanned almost 20 years.

An injured hamstring has kept him out of action in recent months since winning the Caribbean Premier League with Barbados Tridents in October, meaning he bows out from competitive cricket with 20,649 runs to his name.

England cricket team is intended to tour South Africa from December 2019 to February 2020 to play 4 test matches, 3 one day games and 3 matches of Twenty20 International.

JP Duminy:

The 35-year-old had previously stepped away from domestic cricket in May 2019 before wrapping up his time in Proteas colors at the World Cup two months later.

Speaking to South African news site IOL, he has cited a lack of motivation while no longer representing his country as a key factor in his decision.

“When it came to South Africa there was a higher purpose and kids that look up to you. My ambition is to make it known to younger players about that responsibility,” Duminy said.

“It is great to be free and young, but to also be aware of what you do has consequences. With great power comes great responsibility, and playing international cricket you had a degree of purpose.

“I am young enough to play and still earn money from the franchise game, but I am lacking a strong purpose with that.

“I don’t know what’s next. I had to take a bold step of closing a door before I could open the next door.”

Duminy steps away from the game in eighth place on his country’s most-capped player list, with 326 appearances since making his debut in 2004 including 13 outings as captain.

He sits one place behind former captain Graeme Smith, who was recently appointed interim director of South African men’s cricket, and he insists he is undecided as to his next steps.

After a hamstring tear ruled him out of last year’s Mzansi Super League, Duminy remained with Paarl Rocks in a mentoring role as they took the competition title in November.

JP Duminy as Commentator:

However, as he prepares to join the commentary team for the Under-19 World Cup that begins in South Africa on Friday, the batsman insists he has no regrets after a career that finished with an underwhelming international batting average of 36.18.

“The journey ebbed and flowed, but there is 100% no regrets,” Duminy added.

“The standout is more about impact and relations developed over the years, particularly with the players. That is something I will always hold dear.

“It’s been a journey where I doubted myself countless times and also had unbelievable moments. It is these moments that have built me into who I am today.

“People will look at my career and question ‘what if?’ in regards to the talent I have. I don’t think it has been due to lack of effort put it.

“I am truly chuffed by the opportunities that I have been given, but it’s now all about looking forward and what’s still in store for me.”

Cricket’s most notorious Test: How it felt to play in the match fixed by Hansie Cronje

The Centurion Test of 2000 was a big game for me. I had done reasonably well on my first England tour but had not contributed that much by changing a match or making a hundred. It is a story of match fixing.

The weather in Pretoria was awful and we spent most of the week being told there would be no play. It had been a long, hard tour against a strong South African side. We were staying in Sandton in Johannesburg and commuting each day to Pretoria. 

We were told not to go to the ground because of the weather so quite a few of us had a good time enjoying the bars and long lunches on offer in Sandton. There was no play on days two, three and four so we spent the week on the beer.

Cricket’s most notorious Test: How it felt to play in the match fixed by Hansie Cronje

Last day of match:

Then on that final day, we realized there was a chance of play. There were many talks going on about forfeiting innings and setting a target. As a junior member of the side I was not involved in any of those discussions but knew there was something unusual going on. 

We started the last day bowling and realised the pitch had flattened out. Hansie Cronje agreed to 245 in 75 overs but they hit a four off the last ball to make it 249. Still, we could chase down this target.

We lost early wickets and felt we could lose the game so started bedding in for a while. Then I remember they brought on Pieter Strydom, a part-time left-arm spinner. Hansie bowled himself and lobbed up a few outside off stump for me. The intensity had dropped. They wanted a result. 

I made 69 and we won the game with Goughie belting the winning runs. It was a great feeling. My first Test win. I had made a score and was named man of the match. It meant I ended the series believing I could perform at Test level and that I belonged in international cricket. It was a big step forward in my career.

Match fixing:

I never suspected match fixing. Why would you as a young player? However, the one thing that struck me as strange was why that South Africa team had decided to give us a sniff. They were a hard bunch and very tough competitors. They were a bit like Australia in that regard, and yet they agreed to a deal. I remember thinking a few days later, that it was odd.

However, I was still stunned when it broke a few months later that Cronje was doing anything to get a result as part of his deal with a bookie.

Whisper it, but England may have found a top three worthy of the name

England owes county cricket a debt of thanks for the emergence of a top three that no one saw coming. Given the numerous false dawns of English openers in recent years, it would be unwise to get too carried away with Dom Sibley’s maiden Test hundred in England’s series-leveling win at Cape Town.

The post-Strauss back-catalog is littered with one-hit wonders that burnt brightly but briefly before being told to pack their bags and return to county cricket.

Nick Compton, Sam Robson, Adam Lyth, Haseeb Hameed and Keaton Jennings each provide cautionary tales.

Whisper it, but England may have found a top three worthy of the name

Dom Sibley’s hundred:

As Sibley batted through eight hours in England’s second innings at Newlands, facing 311 deliveries on his way to becoming the first English opener to score a Test century at the ground since Jack Hobbs in 1910

James Anderson’s description of the Warwickshire right-hander as a “mirror image” of Alastair Cook started to feel a little less fanciful.

Speaking after his century, Sibley admitted that discussions in the media surrounding his unorthodox technique had affected the way he batted in New Zealand, where he scored 38 runs across three innings and led to him playing at deliveries he would usually have left alone.

“You’re never quite prepared for the spotlight you’re going to be under,” said the 24-year-old. “When you start playing for England, there are people writing about you and picking apart your technique and it’s tough to avoid. In New Zealand I probably put myself under a lot of pressure to get that big score. You want to prove to yourself you’re good enough for this level.”

Whisper it, but England may have found a top three worthy of the name

By scoring a hundred against an impressive South African attack and setting up a memorable victory, Sibley has proven to himself and his doubters that he is capable.

The turning tracks of Sri Lanka on England’s next tour will provide a different type of challenge but the composure and clarity of thought he showed at Cape Town gives reason for cautious optimism.

Joe Denly and Rory Burns:

While an ankle injury has ruled Rory Burns out of action for the next four months just as his Test career was gathering pace, there is now genuine hope that when he returns England will finally have an opening partnership with some staying power. Throw Joe Denly into the mix, and, whisper it, they may actually have a top three worthy of the name.

Denly’s average of 31.30 doesn’t leap off the page, and his failure to turn starts into big scores remains a concern. But he has now faced more than 100 balls in eight of his last 12 innings and looks increasingly comfortable at Test level.

Whisper it, but England may have found a top three worthy of the name

The value of that last statistic won’t be wasted on Root, Stokes, and Buttler, who thanks to Sibley and Denly got a rare opportunity to play some shots from a position of dominance in the second innings at Cape Town.

The knock-on effect of a solid top three cannot be overestimated with this England side. Think back to Matt Prior and the destruction he caused coming in at No.7, with 250-plus regularly on the board.

Jos Buttler recently admitted he is “not quite performing to the standards I need to” and one hundred from 38 Tests doesn’t come close to doing justice to his talent but how often has he been given the platform to play with the freedom so often afforded to Prior in those heady days.

Malan’s powerful distinction between pressure and privilege

While Pieter Malan’s 288-ball, 369-minute knock of 84 came in a losing cause for the Proteas in the second Test against England at Newlands this week, it was one of the more impressive debuts you are likely to see.

Malan, at the age of 30 and with comfortably more than 10 000 first-class runs to his name, showed incredible application, concentration, and defensive resilience as he got his side agonizingly close to what would have been a famous draw.

Just as impressive as his on-field achievement, though, was how Malan handled himself in his post-match press conference, where he sat in front of a packed room of South African and English journalists.

Malan has waited a long, long time for this moment, having notched up nearly 150 first-class matches over the years, and finally, the world was taking note.

Faf on Pieter Malan:

His answers were inspiring in their honesty, while Malan provided a dose of perspective that is often forgotten when talking about playing sport at the highest level.

“Somebody asked me earlier about being out there and feeling pressure, but that does not pressure… that’s privilege,” he said, providing easily the quote of the series so far.

“Pressure is playing in a semi-professional game with nobody watching, fighting for your career.”

For Malan, it looked as if the opportunity to play international cricket had come and gone.

“Definitely,” he said, frankly, when asked if he thought this moment would never come.

“I probably thought that when I was way younger than I am now, that it was never going to happen.

“Life works in funny ways and I reached a point in my life where I decided that if it’s going to happen, it’s going to happen and that it’s not something for me to worry about.”

Malan's powerful distinction between pressure and privilege

The advantage of fielding someone of Malan’s experience on debut is that he enters the international arena a complete player and one who understands his own game in and out.

Malan’s account of his past also speaks to a maturity that comes with trying and then failing and then doing it over and over again.

“I don’t think I did myself any favors when I was younger,” he added.

“I took a lot of stuff for granted and I didn’t really put in the hard work that, in hindsight, I needed to put in.

“It’s also a matter of opportunities and them being limited and then not taking them when I did get them.

Malan’s ability:

Malan’s character and ability to roll up the sleeves is exactly what the new Proteas leadership is looking for and he is now a shoo-in for the Tests in Port Elizabeth and Johannesburg.

It was such a refreshing reminder that, sometimes, hard work pays off and the cream rises to the top.

“Being out there in front of the Barmy Army, with Jimmy Anderson running in … it felt like a video game at one stage,” he said.

“It was unbelievable and I felt very privileged to be in a position where I could fight for the team.

“I’ve walked down these stairs a lot of times playing for WP and I’ve even played a club game here. I always take a second or two to look up at the mountain and appreciate where we play. It’s very special for me.”

Then, around 10 minutes later as the journalists were bashing away furiously at their laptops, Malan returned to the room.

He had forgotten his pair of sunglasses on the press conference table, alongside all of the microphones and recording devices.

“Sorry, I forgot these here. I don’t get them for free,” he said to laughter, picking them up and scurrying off.

Malan, before this past week, was a regular Joe who did regular things. That is all about to change, and it is so fully deserved.

Ben Stokes: Tests should be five days forever

Ben Stokes made an emphatic case for five-day Test cricket this week by inspiring England to a series-leveling win against South Africa in the final over’s of the match.

His match-winning performance in Cape Town on Tuesday came at a time of intense debate over the future of the longest form of the game, which has been played since 1877.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) now wants to reduce Tests to four days as part of structuring the global calendar beyond 2023. The proposal, part of an effort to tackle the crowded international cricket calendar and save on costs. But it has divided players, many of whom consider Test cricket the gold standard of the game.

ICC Rules for Test matches:

The ICC allowed four-day Tests in 2017 and they have been tried in one-off games between South Africa and Zimbabwe and England against Ireland. But they are not allowed in the Test world championship.

The Cricinfo website said mandatory four-day Tests during the current cycle from 2015 to 2023 would have freed up a total of 335 days of cricket over the period.

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has offered “cautious” backing to the proposal and Australia and New Zealand have said four-day Tests deserve serious consideration.

Several top cricketers are against the idea and the global players’ representative body has warned of “significant player resistance”. Others such as Shane Warne have voiced support for a change.

England all-rounder Stokes claimed the last three South Africa wickets at Newlands to earn a 189-run victory for England, who leveled the four-match series at 1-1 on Tuesday.

Afterward, he and England captain Joe Root spoke out in favor of the longer format, which allows the drama and nuances of the game time to play out.

“It’s why five-day cricket should always be around. It’s the best form of the game,” said Stokes, England’s man of the match.

Root’s opposite number, Faf du Plessis, also said he did not support a move towards four-day Test matches, despite a statement by Cricket South Africa that it was official policy to back a reduced format.

England director of men’s cricket Ashley Giles said on Wednesday that five-day Tests were “precious”.

“If we played four-day cricket, I fear we would miss out on a lot of matches like yesterday (England’s win),” Giles told the BBC.

Virat Kohli’s view:

India’s Virat Kohli spoke earlier this month about his opposition to any move to cut a day from Tests, questioning where it would ultimately lead.   With four-day Tests “you are purely only talking about getting numbers in and entertainment, and I think the intent will not be right,” said the India skipper.

“Then you will speak of three-day Tests. I mean, where do you end?

Ben Stokes passes on Player of the Match award to Dom Sibley

At the end of England’s dramatic Newlands victory over South Africa, Ben Stokes refuted the television media’s assertion that he should be awarded the player of the match award. Instead, when his name was announced he tried to bring maiden centurion Dominic Sibley with him to collect the award.

Sibley though, whether out of humility, shyness or some combination of the two, refused to join Stokes in front of the cameras. But the attempt did not go unnoticed and the all-rounder was asked about it as he gathered the award.

Ben Stokes on Sibley:

Asked why he tried to bring Sibley with him, he answered, “I came in situations where it was done or die really and I thought Dom put all the hard yards in to get us in the position of winning. He’s the man of the match; he should be the one up here. But he’s unfortunately slid away, but I won’t be taking that, he’s trying to run away as fast as he can. Full credit’s got to go to Dom and how he played.”

Stokes was given the award for his superb all-round performance. He became only the third player to complete the trio of 100 or more runs, six catches and three wickets in a single Test, alongside Frank Wooley and Jacques Kallis. Sibley meanwhile scored a gritty unbeaten 133 to provide the backbone to England’s second innings.

Stokes later said that the two were battling for who was going to take the trophy with them, each trying to sneak it into the other’s belongings in the changing room until Stokes issued an ultimatum.

“We are sitting next to each other in the dressing room and I walked in, gave it to him and he put it in my place. I went ‘no’ and put it in his bag, walked back in and it was back in my bag. I said: ‘You’ve shafted me once by making me do the interviews if it ends up back in my spot we are never sitting next to each other again.’ He has got it now.”

Flurry of late wickets seals SA defeats

South Africa’s resilience on the final day wasn’t enough as England won the second Test at Newlands in Cape Town by 189 runs to level the four-match series 1-1.

Prior to this defeat, South Africa had lost only four Test matches at Newlands and all of them have been against Australia, but England’s better showing with the bat proved to be the ultimate difference in the end.

Ollie Pope’s crucial contribution in the first innings certainly led to an early advantage for England after the Proteas looked on top for the most of day one.

The Proteas were always going to be on the back foot after being dismissed for 43 runs less than England in their first innings.

While Dom Sibley’s ton and Ben Stokes’ 72 in the second innings ultimately took the game away from South Africa, and it was going to take something special to chase 438 or bat out the whole of the final day with the hope of salvaging a draw.

James Anderson got the ball rolling early on Tuesday morning, getting rid of night watchman Keshav Maharaj before Faf du Plessis lost patience while facing Dom Bess as he opted for a sweep shot which was taken at square leg by Joe Denly for 19.

Sam Curran:

Pieter Malan’s valiant effort of 84 also ended shortly after the lunch break when a superb spell by Sam Curran had him caught at second slip by Stokes.

Rassie van der Dussen and Quinton de Kock then did extremely well to get to tea without losing a further wicket as they brought up a 50-run partnership.

But De Kock also made a poor shot selection against Denly, just after getting his half-century when he tried to go big against the spinner, only to pick out Zak Crawley at midwicket.

Local boy Vernon Philander strolled out to the middle for the final time at Newlands as he tried to block as much deliveries as possible with Van der Dussen at the other end.

Van der Dussen then also made a very poor shot selection as he played from his legs down leg gully’s throat after Stuart Broad decided to come around the wicket to the right-hander.

Dwaine Pretorius was the new man in but he never looked comfortable against Ben Stokes, who was steaming in from the Wynberg end, nicking a straight one to Joe Root at first slip.

Kagiso Rabada managed to prevent Stokes from claiming a hat-trick, but it was all over when the Englishman got Philander out after he failed to deal with a shorter delivery, the catch taken by Pope as England sealed the victory.

Ben Stokes on the return of wiser and more for a crucial cricket summer

Ben Stokes said raising an eyebrow a quiet morning at Lord’s. He does not look convinced, because all the intensity and glory of summer have long since disappeared.

In July, Stokes helped England win the World Cup despite a wild drama. He then won the most extraordinary return win in Ashes history at Headingley few weeks later.

England’s cricket team is scheduled to tour South Africa from December 2019 to February 2020 to play four test matches, three international day games and three matches of Twenty20 International.

Less than a year ago, he had been cleared before the Supreme Court of Bristol after a clash in September 2017 in front of a nightclub, which had cost him the vice-captaincy of England, his place on the last tour Ashes, and threatened his freedom and his career.

He shrugs and smiles in a way that shows his pride is still hurt. People have tried to call it summer of Ben’s redemption, he suggests, slipping into the third person for the only time of our time together. I do not see it like that at all. I see it as if I was going out and trying to do my best to help England win matches.

He relaxes a little and unfolds his arms when I talk to him about a conversation I had with Alastair Cook, his close friend and former captain of England. Cook, who rarely makes outrageous statements, pointed out that Stokes was the most unselfish teammate he had played with. He also suggested that once acquitted, Stokes was working harder than ever as a cricketer.

I think when you know what might happen, Stokes nodded before pausing when Bristol came back. Obviously, there were moments throughout this project when we did not know what was going to happen.

His voice moves away. Has he come back with more determination to make the most of his talent?

“It’s hard to answer. But I think I was motivated by the idea of ​​not letting anyone down. I can always leave people on the cricket field with skills and mistakes. At some point, you may not be good enough or have a bad pass. But if anything in the game affected the result and it was due to my physical form or concentration? That’s what I try to avoid. “

The World Cup final and Headingley were extremely tense. Stokes showed amazingly varied skills in two different formats, but his commitment was even more impressive than his driving stick.

Desire and courage, these very human feelings, were evident in almost every shot Stokes played. These were so authentic innings, rather than miracles of storytelling because it did not seem like Stokes enjoyed the fierce intensity with so many things that depended on him.

You can’t enjoy it until it’s over. The World Cup final and Headingley would have been terrible if we had not won them. It was a dagger in my heart no matter what I did. I could have left after scoring 84 in the final.

People would have said, Oh, good luck, but I would not have cared. In Headingley, if I had 120, people would have said again, “An incredible effort,” but it would not have mattered if we had lost. People asked me what means more – the finale or Headingley.

It’s like choosing between two-three and six. You can not the only difference is that after the World Cup, there was something to show for the efforts made.

Headingley was one of two English victories in a drawn series that allowed Australia to retain the Ashes. Stokes scored 135 away and Jack Leach, who was not absent on 1st, shared an uninterrupted partnership of 73 runs for the last box while England chased 359.

It was an incredible feat. “Maybe I could say more clearly in 20 years,” says Stokes, “but here, for the moment, I can’t choose between the two.”

Stokes is doing this interview to publicize a new book about his role in “summer to Remember”, which is particularly interesting when he reveals fragments of vulnerability under the character of the miracle-man.

After England’s defeat in World Cup games against Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Australia, they had to beat India and New Zealand in their last two group matches to qualify for the semifinals.

Stokes admits, I certainly felt the tension and I told David Young, our psychologist on the team, as much as he invited me after for a coffee. He said, How are you, Ben? I said, I’m nervous, and I opened up.

In 2017, the South African captain, a tough and phlegmatic man, had to endure the loss of his last four wickets in the first 40 minutes. And then attend the fast round of two England batsmen, despite the loss of the two openers with only three runs on the board.

Du Plessis managed his attack skillfully during the remarkably brief innings of England. At one stage, Root was striking so sublimely that the 335 runs of South Africans looked inadequate.

After the English captain’s departure after a majestic 78 runs of 76 balls, the innings imploded, Du Plessis pulling the metaphorical strings as deftly as Messrs.

In one way or another, England managed to change the ball before the game started and it seems that the replacement was a bit more mischievous than the one used under the sun of the previous evening.

James Anderson finished with another draw five times on his beloved Trent Bridge, where he played much more effectively for England than at home. He now has 59 wickets here in nine games and this is his seventh out of five steals when he moved to Nottingham on the 22 he won in test cricket.

He managed to dismiss Heino Kuhn, but it was England’s only success in the final session of another fascinating and stunning day – and very painful for the locals.

Irish sports journalist Con Houlihan said every team should have a redhead. It is true that Ben Stokes combined with his powerful cadre and his scandalous talent has propelled England a little timid to another level.

Able to play games with his stick, bowling and on the field – both in character and action – Stokes quickly made comparisons with Ian Botham. The expectations were huge.

He had the time and the ability to make sure that he would be remembered for more positive reasons. A few months after his return, Stokes played a key role in the Englishman’s 3-0 victory in Sri Lanka, his first win in Asia in a series of whitewashes.

Trevor Bayliss described Stokes’ attitude as “exemplary”, claiming he had “learned his lesson”.

Stokes, like England after a monotonous tournament, needed to rejuvenate. This began with the Lord’s Test against New Zealand when Stokes scored 92 and 101 after being promoted to No. 6 bat. Ashes followed the direction of Bayliss and Paul Farbrace.

A few months later, he produced 258 balls against 198 for South Africa in Cape Town – the fastest of the two hundred Britons in history and the second-fastest ever – at a 399 stand with Jonny Bairstow.
