South African player JP Duminy has said that his 'remodelled' bowling action was a case of returning to his former, comfortable technique.

South Africa discarded out-of-form Robin Peterson for the second Test against Australia, making part-timer Duminy their No.1 spin option and his one wicket in each Australian innings was crucial in the hosts' 231-run win in Port Elizabeth.

According to, Duminy, who was named Man of the Match for his first Test century in South Africa, altered his bowling action between the first and second Tests, with some likening it to Indian bowler Harbhajan Singh's high-arm release.

However, Duminy said that his technique tweak, and the ball that trapped Australian opener David Warner LBW, is a case of un-fixing what was never broken, adding that he used the technique a few years ago and felt that his shape on the ball came out a lot better with that sort of action.

Meanwhile, Duminy admitted that he felt some pressure being the side's No.1 spinner on a day-four pitch, although he added that a support cast of Dale Steyn, Vernon Philander and Morne Morkel made it easy to relax.
