Cape Town, Mar 15 (IBNS): South African cricketer JP Duminy on Friday announced that he will retire from 50-over format after the ICC Cricket World Cup in the UK later this year.

Duminy will play the T20 format of the game.

As per Cricket South Africa website, Duminy, who announced his retirement from Test and First-Class cricket in 2017 to put more focus on his white-ball cricket, feels ‘the time is right’ to close this chapter of his international career.

“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,” he told Cricket South Africa website.

“While a decision like this is never easy, I also feel that it is the right time for me to pass on the baton. 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. 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," he said.
