Profile

Fondly known as JP, South African cricketer Jean-Paul Duminy is renowned for his stylish batting, usually featuring in the middle order. However, success came to him rather late after his entry into the international circuit. He came into national prominence after exhibiting his vast potential in South Africa's Under-19 tour to England in 2003. A brief stint with his domestic team, the Western Province also strengthened his foundation for a national inclusion.

Duminy debuted in ODIs in 2004, but his initial years were marked by more failure than success. However, he made a phenomenal start to his Test career and played some crucial innings to help South Africa clinch important victories since his debut in 2008. A calm 50* in his first Test provided a good supporting role in helping South Africa chase down a mammoth 414 in Perth. A magnificent 166 in Melbourne in the very next match pulled South Africa out of inertia and played an important role in helping South Africa achieve a series win. Soon, he became an integral part of the limited-overs side too. Not only with the bat, Duminy also started contributing with the ball with his more than handy off-spinners. With a calm approach and elegantly skillful batting, Duminy has, over the years carved out a strong place for himself in the Protea side. A graceful player of the cover-drive and square cut, he fancies the mid-wicket region too. However, he has had a few problems in facing short deliveries. He is one of the best fieldsmen alongside big names like AB de Villiers and Herschelle Gibbs.

Duminy has also been a part of the Indian T20 league, initially representing the franchise of Mumbai and later plying his trade for Hyderabad along with playing for Cape Cobras in South Africa's domestic T20 competition. In 2014, Duminy was bought by the Delhi franchise for 2.2 crores to play for them in the seventh edition of the Indian T20 League.
