Proteas manager happy with injured Duminy's steady progress

Johannesburg, Feb 13 (ANI): South African team manager Mohammed Moosajee has expressed his optimism with the physical progress made by injured JP Duminy following an Achilles tendon injury he sustained during a training session before the first test against Australia in November 2012.

Moosajee said that Duminy had entered the next phase of his rehabilitation programme consisting of walking drills, which would progress to light jogging in the next three weeks, Sport24 reports.

Adding that Duminy is on schedule with his rehabilitation programme, Moosajee said that the team medicos had taken a conservative approach to his treatment because of the sensitive nature of the injury.

The Proteas manager further said that Duminy's rehabilitation programme had included swimming, cycling and leg strengthening drills, and added that he is on track to begin light batting in the next three to four weeks.

Positive about his recovery, Duminy said that he was glad to be walking normally after a frustrating period of immobility, although he added that it is necessary to be patient during the recovery.

Crediting physiotherapists Brandon Jackson and Shane Jabaar, Duminy said that they helped him overcome his fears about the nature and severity of his injury. (ANI)
