Proteas all-rounder JP Duminy is back on home soil after another IPL venture and is already thinking about July’s tour of Bangladesh.
The 31-year-old landed at Cape Town International on Tuesday having captained the Delhi Daredevils to seventh on the IPL log and an early exit from the tournament.
Having just set foot in his home town, Sport24 asked the versatile left-handed batsman how he would be spending his first few days back.
“I’m happy to be home,” said Duminy.
“It was a great experience and a great experience as captain. I learnt a lot and I’m looking forward to next year.”
While Duminy said that he enjoyed the captaincy in India, he did not see an opportunity to skipper back home – domestically or on the international stage.
“To be honest, I haven’t thought that far yet. But, look, let’s see what happens,” he said.
“I don’t think that opportunity will come any time soon, so I’m pretty happy with where I’m at in terms of what I’ve experienced and the knowledge I’ve gained.
“I’ll take some time out now and then get ready for Bangladesh.
“I’ll get the golf clubs out now and that’s pretty much it.”
Duminy expected to be back in the Proteas setup around the middle of June.
The Proteas play two T20s, three ODIs and two Test matches in Bangladesh from July 5.
