Port Elizabeth - JP Duminy scored his third Test century as South Africa were bowled out for 423 after tea, on day two of the second Test at St George's Park, in Port Elizabeth, on Friday.

The 29-year-old brought up his ton off 199 balls, with 13 fours, as South Africa neared the 400 mark.

Duminy was out lbw to spinner Nathan Lyon for 123 (231 balls, 14 fours) straight after the interval. The strike completed the five-wicket haul for Lyon who ended the innings with figures of 5/130 from his 46 overs.

Before tea, Duminy had shared in a 149 run sixth wicket stand with AB de Villiers.
