South Africa allrounder JP Duminy has pulled out of the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League. The Delhi Daredevils player has cited personal reasons for his decision. Duminy, who led the team in the 2015 edition, has been a vital cog in the Daredevils set up, having scored 1015 runs for the franchise at an impressive average of 44.13 since the 2014 edition, when he was snapped up.
“I’m grateful for the support and understanding from the franchise. It has been an absolute privilege to have played for and led a talented mix of players. I certainly hope to play a part for the franchise in the near future.”
Daredevils open their campaign with an away fixture against last year’s finalists Royal Challengers Bangalore on April 8.
