JP Duminy eager to get back to form

The last few months have been extremely ordinary for South Africa’s all rounder JP Duminy. Duminy, often termed as South Africa’s X Factor, has went through an indifferent phase as he has failed to make an impact with the bat in the recent months. The limited overs outing against England was a low point for Duminy as he was even dropped for the fifth ODI.

However, with the T20 World Cup commencing, Duminy is eager to put the past behind him and get back to form. “I will be lying if I say it hasn’t been a really average season for me,” Duminy admitted. “But I enjoy these events and I feel very refreshed at a world event like this.”

“When you are under pressure and your heart rate is 180, it’s hard to keep your thinking clear and that’s why we’ve spoken about doing the basics well,” Duminy said. “If you focus on something that easy, it gives you a good chance of putting in a big performance in that situation.”

Duminy also said that South Africa’s performance in recent ICC events had improved and their aim would be to do well this time around as well. “We’ve taken massive strides in these events. In the past, we’ve buckled under the pressure. If we look back to the last T20 and 50-over World Cup where we reached the semi-finals, we were outplayed,” Duminy said. “It’s when we haven’t given our best that we’ve let ourselves down. Quietly confident is the phrase that’s going around, especially in the shorter format. We are looking forward to this tournament.”
