South African all-rounder JP Duminy says that he is happy in his new role as number three.

South African all-rounder JP Duminy has said that he is happy in his new role batting at number three.

The change is one of many made by coach Russell Domingo to the ODI set-up and seems to have paid dividends, with Duminy making 92 runs during a warm-up match against a Sri Lanka Board President's XI.

"I'm pleased with that role to be honest," Duminy told reporters.

"I have always felt comfortable, especially in one-day cricket and shorter formats of the game batting higher up the order. I like to give myself a good chance of getting in and trying to dominate from there.

"Today was one of those perfect situations to do that, coming in the tenth over, it gave me a chance to work myself in, then take charge towards the end."

Duminy has played 94 ODIs for South Africa and has scored 2,601 runs.
