balls profile: JP Duminy

Has never been in a French New Wave film.  After making 166 in his second test he said, “I guess I have a lot to live up now.”  Hasn’t yet lived up to it, making two fifties since then.  His batting is perhaps too pretty to be real.  Sort of like watching a young Sugar Ray Robinson in the dusk light filmed on a 16mm cam.  His footwork is breathtaking, but has been used mainly to walk to and from the wicket of late.  Was verbally fellated by Ian Chappell so much after his hundred that many believe this is the reason for his loss of class.  Has never had the nickname, “cricket’s Justin Bieber”.

    There is one thing I like about Duminy

    He plays much better when plays for SAFs than for Mimbai Indians, total departure from Rohit Sharma !

  2. While playing a big role in his team’s first ever Test series win in Australia is no ordinary achievement,Ian Chappell went a bit too far to anoint him as the next ‘Greatest batsman’. :D

    Ian Chappell made that statement,when Duminy scored a good 99* in a Champions’ League match,but he doen’t seem to know that Duminy rarely fired at such an aggreesive rate for Mumbai Indians and South Africa in the T20 cups. :D
