JP Duminy, Ruled Out Against West Indies

JP Duminy, the South Africa cricket team all rounder, has been ruled out of the ICC World Twenty20 2016 match against West Indies in Nagpur on Friday (March 25) due to a hamstring injury.

Duminy injured his left hamstring during the match against Afghanistan on Sunday, with subsequent scans on Monday confirming the extent of the injury.
“He is big player for us, especially at a venue where we know its going to spin. JP is definitely a guy that gives us the option of bowling four overs for us and his batting too is a loss. He has been in good form and it does upset the balance of the side,” Domingo told the media on Monday.

Proteas team manager, Dr Mohammed Moosajee explained: “The scans which were done yesterday confirmed our clinical suspicion of a hamstring strain which means that he will be ruled out of Friday’s game against the West Indies in Nagpur. “

"The plan is to try and get him ready for our last round-robin match against Sri Lanka in Delhi on Sunday. Our physiotherapist, Brandon Jackson, has already started with treatment and rehab and for now we will have to wait and see how he responds to the plan.”

The Proteas are unsure for how long Duminy will be ruled out for at this stage, although the support staff will try and get the all-rounder ready for next week’s final group match against Sri Lanka in Delhi too.
