Wessels Sees Positives in JP Duminy’s Injury Time Out

JP Duminy returns home from South Africa’s series against India but the batting coach believes it may do him good.
JP Duminy suffered a hand injury during the second ODI of the India South Africa series and apparently was also suffering from a toothache as well.
Jean Paul Duminy, the toast of South Africa on South Africa’s tour of Australia last year, could not find his rhythm on the tour of India and in many ways, South Africa suffered as a result of a silent middle order.
Kepler Wessels, former South African captain and current batting coach, felt the break was a welcome for Duminy. Wessels stated, “We mentioned a few technical and psychological aspects that we would like him to work on. It’s a good thing that he will now go and play in the Indian Premier League (IPL 3) where the pressure is not so intense and he will be able to regain his confidence.”
Wessels also denied anything out of the ordinary as far as Duminy’s troubles were concerned, “It is not unusual for young players to start struggling after early success once opponents start making plans for them. In that case it’s the young player’s task to find a counter. JP has the world’s talent and I believe he can fight back.”
South Africa will certainly hope so.
