South Africa‘s JP Duminy feels that dropping catches in Test matches is never easy and a slip-up always allows the opposition to bounce right back into the contest.


South Africa had earlier dropped two catches in the Australian innings.


Duminy who scored a brilliant 123 in South Africa’s first innings of the second Test match at Port Elizabeth was the highest run-scorer for his side and his ton helped the home side notch up an impressive 423 in their first essay.


The wicket of de Villiers didn’t deter JP Duminy’s hopes, who soon completed 1000 runs in Test cricket and then soon after, reached his third hundred in Test cricket.


Duminy has played a brilliant knock for his team so far. Early in the morning session when de Villiers took his time to settle in, Duminy was the aggressor against the likes of Mitchell Johnson and Ryan Harris. Later when de Villiers took on the charge, he played second fiddle.
