South Africa all-rounder Jean Paul (JP) Duminy has been elected as the president of the South African Cricketers’ Association (SACA).
Duminy, who is currently recovering from a knee injury, will now sit on the SACA players’ executive committee, which takes major cricketing decisions on behalf of the players, while also looking after their commercial and financial interests.
“Not only is JP one of the top national cricketers, but he is also a very astute and well-rounded guy,” SACA CEO Tony Irish told ESPNcricinfo. “He participates, he is involved, and with all the years he has had playing the game, he is also very experienced. The players believe he is the best guy to be their leader in this department.”
It has also been announced that batsman Farhaan Behardien, Cape Cobras top-order batsman Omphile Ramela and Highveld Lions first-class and List A captain Stephen Cook will join Duminy on the executive committee.
