JP Duminy is currently one of the most experienced players in the IPL circuit. Internationally still an integral part of the South African team and along with his experience, he has been the player bringing in quality into the DD squad. With close to 5000 T20 runs and just a shade under 2000 IPL runs, Duminy’s pedigree is self explanatory.

Duminy has scored over 400 runs in each of the last two seasons and has been the talisman of the DD batting lineup. Duminy was the top scorer for the daredevils in the 2014 edition and was second only to Shreyas Iyer (434 runs) in the last edition.

Going into the 2016 edition, DD would be looking ahead to their veteran player to keep his run scoring spree intact. With a set of new players joining the team this year – Duminy’s consistency will make him a vital cog of the batting lineup.
