South African international JP Duminy announced his retirement from Test match and first-class cricket on Saturday.
The 33-year-old left-handed batsman and part-time right-arm off-spinner will continue to play in limited-overs cricket both domestically and internationally, he said in a statement sent by Cricket South Africa.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed the privilege and opportunity to represent my country in 46 Tests and the WSB Cape Cobras in 108 first-class matches overs the past 16 years,” said Duminy. “It is an experience that cannot be replaced and one I will always cherish.”
Duminy hit six Test centuries during his career and he’s planning on adding to his four in One-day Internationals before fully hanging up his bat.
“In the years ahead, my focus will be placed on attaining limited-overs cricket success for South Africa and the WSB Cape Cobras, along with attending to my young family, who have been incredibly supportive and understanding,” he added.
