Duminy looking forward to captaincy debut

News

South Africa all-rounder JP Duminy is looking forward to leading the side when they play in Australia in November, and is excited to get the chance to show his seniority has merit.

Duminy will skipper the T20 side against the Aussies, in between the ODIs against New Zealand and Michael Clarke’s men, and this will be his maiden stint as skipper, which he is excited about.

He said he liked the way the Proteas’ leadership worked, with three skippers, one for each team. He also enjoyed the way senior players were encouraged to give their input, on and off the field, to help the captains.

Duminy said ahead of the trip to New Zealand: “I’ve part of a leadership group for a year now and this is a great opportunity in being able to lead from the front.

“I’ve had a few chats to certain individuals about captaincy but its also about being authentic and trying to lead as I see fit.

“The strength that lies in our leadership group is that nobody takes the full responsibility We can help one another along the journey and if you don’t have the answers, seek the answers.

“Nobody is perfect or has the answers for everything. It’s an opportunity for us to expand that leadership group.”
