Jean Paul Duminy now part of Mumbai IPL cricket team

February 21, 2009

JP Duminy has been inducted into the Mumbai Indians IPL cricket team

Duminy - Mumbai Indians IPL team-DrivenJean Paul Duminy, the South African cricketing star of the Australia vs South Africa cricket series has been selected for a whopping price by the Mumbai Indians IPL cricket team

The exuberance of Duminy ‘s youth balanced with the experience of Sachin Tendulkar and Sanath Jayasurya will create an amazing batting lineup for the Mumbai Indians IPL team

JP Duminy epitomizes a cricket batsman in form- a batsman who does not really care for reputations and even treated the Australian bowling attack like a jaded second string Zimbabwe bowling combination. Duminy is exactly what the Mumbai Indians cricket team needs, an attacking batsman who does not care for bowling reputations

Duminy comes to the Mumbai Indians cricket team at a time when the Mumbai IPL team was in danger of being regarded as an “veteran player” team, with Sachin Tendulkar, Sanath Jayasurya, Zaheer Khan, Fernando and other “old” cricketers gracing its ranks. With the addition of JP Duminy and Ashraful in its ranks, the Mumbai IPL cricket team now looks more balanced and has the right combination of youth and experience

Is Duminy really only a cricket test match player and can he do well in the T20 cricket format for the Mumbai Indians IPL team

Duminy joins a select group of champion South African cricket players in the IPL such as Jacques Kallis, Graeme Smith and Mark Boucher- but barring Graeme Smith, none of the other South African cricketers have done well in the IPL. In fact, Duminy ‘s success against Australia came largely in the test cricket series, and Jean Paul Duminy still faces questions about whether he can do well in the T20 format for the Mumbai Indians IPL team

In addition, Duminy has probably never travelled to the Indian subcontinent and definitely not played cricket at the highest level. Duminy ‘s ability to acclimatize quickly to the Indian cultural environment will be tested in the rigorous schedule of the IPL


Duminy will of course enjoy playing with the likes of Sachin Tendulkar and Sanath Jayasurya in the IPL and will have a great experience at the start of his international career

..and Duminy will have loads of money too!
