In 2016, JP called for a problem to be addressed by the selectors after dealing with a controversy surrounding the ‘Quota Policy’, which specifically focuses on increasing Black African players in the game of cricket. This threatened to wreak havoc in South African cricket. Duminy said that from a managerial point of view, skin colour does not matter. He added that there will always be politics and various selection issues, but one needs to remember that when it comes to playing for the national team, you have been picked on merit for your abilities.
JP felt that playing for the Indian Premier League (IPL) in 2016 helped him evolve as a cricketer. He liked that one can build friendships outside your own country.
“You get to understand the different cultures with one team and that’s been the most rewarding part of being in the IPL, apart from the playing experience and packed crowds.”
