Delhi Daredevils chief executive Hemant Dua confirmed that Duminy will be unavailable for the tournament owing to personal reasons.

"We respect JP's decision. We are naturally very disappointed to not have JP in our midst this year, but as a franchise we clearly understand his position. At this stage, we can only confirm that we will look for a replacement at an appropriate time," Dua was quoted as saying in a media release.

On his part Duminy was disappointed to miss out on the forthcoming edition.

"It has been a very difficult decision for me to make, but it was for purely personal reasons. I am grateful for the support and understanding from the franchise. It has been an absolute privilege to have played for and led a talented mix of players. I certainly hope to play a part for the franchise in the near future."

Australia vs South Africa, T20 World Cup, Latest Updates: Anrich Nortje's last over. If he can take a wicket here, it would be massive for South Africa. Australia need 18 runs in 12 balls. Single to begin. Oh, it was drilled straight back at Nortje by Stoinis, but the South African can't hang on to the ball, there was too much power in that shot. Stoinis runs two. Two singles follow and then FOUR!! It's a shorter delivery, and Stoinis manages to pull over mid-wicket for a boundary. Single to end the over.
