Duminy launches project aimed at reviving cricket


South African T20 squad captain JP Duminy speaks at a joint press conference at Sydney Cricket Ground on October 31 2014.

CAPE TOWN - Giving back to the community is high on JP Duminy’s priority list.

The Proteas all-rounder has launched the JP21 Project, with a key focus to revive cricket within the community of Mitchells Plain and Strandfontein.

With the ICC World Cup looming and the intense schedule that he faces while still actively involved in the sport, Duminy believes he has the correct structures in place to ensure a successful project.

"I’ve invested into it whole-heartedly, so I know that for this project to work, I need to invest in it properly."

"I’ve done that, and I’ve identified people that I know and trust whole-heartedly than can run this project for me and make it a success."

The JP21 project currently has 44 primary schools on their database with a total of over 1,000 scholars involved.
