Although he finds himself in a rich vein of form, Delhi Daredevils batsman Jean Paul Duminy is content with his batting slot in the lower middle-order.
“I’m enjoying it. I have batted in different situations this season. It has been a great success individually. We have a high-class top order. So, I will bat in the same position. It’s normal for me since I bat there for South Africa too,” said the left-hander on the sidelines of the Idea Cellular Delhi Daredevils fan page launch here.
Though he’s content with his batting display, Duminy admits his side has failed to succeed collectively. “In matches where we have bowled well, our batting has let us down and vice-versa. It’s a new squad so we are still trying things. If we get a couple of wins, we will get some momentum going. We have an outside chance of qualifying for the playoffs.”
Looking back to the defeat against Chennai Super Kings on Monday, Duminy said, “With the start we had, we should have probably got to 200. But it was a par score. It’s tough to defend at the Ferozeshah Kotla as it is a small ground.”
“We needed to dent CSK’s top order. But we did well to take it to the final over. We have a young bowling attack and it was good to see that they stuck to their plans,” added Duminy.
