JP Duminy returns to the Proteas Castle Lager ODI squad for the ICC Champions Trophy Tournament to be held in England and Wales at the start of next month. Jacques Kallis has, however, made himself unavailable for personal reasons. It will be Duminy’s first selection since he suffered a severe ankle injury during the first Test match against Australia six months ago.
“JP is well on the way to a full recovery,” commented Cricket South Africa (CSA) selection convener Andrew Hudson. “The latest information is that he will be fully fit to play his part in all three disciplines by the end of the month. He is a very experienced limited overs cricketer and we don’t anticipate his lack of match practice being any kind of problem.
