Proteas spinner Robin Peterson recalls the time he pranked JP Duminy.
‘After a long flight delay at OR Tambo International Airport before our 2012 tour to Australia, I got quite bored. So I decided to play a prank on one of the boys, and the unfortunate victim was JP Duminy. I secretly went to one of the shops and bought a pair of red fluffy handcuffs. When the guys weren’t looking, I hid them deep in one of JP’s rucksacks. As we all moved through the X-ray machine, JP’s bag sounded off the alarm. After a quick check, he tried again, but still the alarm went off. He couldn’t understand what the problem was. The security guards then went through his bag and eventually pulled out the handcuffs. You can imagine the shocked look on JP’s face … he went bright red! The boys couldn’t contain themselves and poor JP didn’t hear the end of it for a long time. Until this day, he still hasn’t delivered a comeback that beats the ol’ handcuffs prank.’
