    Voges 20/20 catch vs Duminy 20/20 catch

    Voges catch was a huge turning point in the T20 on Sunday. McCullum was looking ready to fire.

    JP Duminy's T20 catch was superb though it did not affect the outcome of the match to any great extent.

    Which was better?

    No comparison. Duminy was running a long way back, falling, looking from under his cap, lights would be a factor etc, and Voges has been so over-hyped it's not funny. Most players should be expected to be able to do that.

    Voges' presence of mind was really good. In the end, most people under that sort of pressure wouldn't have the ability to throw the ball in the air that high; rather pop it up a little bit in case they kept their feet and ensure that it wouldn't be six.

    Still, JPs was the better catch.

    Duminy.

    The catch like Voges has been done a few times in Aus domestic cricket, most probably around the world too. If he was the first to ever pull off such a catch and given it's importance in the match (T20 meh) it might have been even more spectacular.

    No doubting the catch by Vogues was very impressive. Although similar catches are witnessed from time to time in domestic cricket.

    JP's catch on the other hand was incredible and anyone who has played the game of cricket would appreciate the rare skill required to catch an overhead ball whilst running at full pace.

    JP gets my vote, far tougher catch.

    Duminy's required more skill, but i preferred Voges's. I really love great fielding. Probably only second to great legspin bowling in what I love to see in a cricket match.

    JP's no doubt. Not only did he have to run at full pace but he had to dive in the end. Unbelievable catch. Probably one of the best.

    Voges, a guy with a thinking head on the shoulders! Good catch but still, Duminy's catch gets my vote!

    Duminy gets my vote, i see from the point of which catch i can pull off, voges catch most crickets can think of pulling off even though it was expertly done. JP however required far more skill

    Duminy for me, but Voges one of the best "presence of mind" catches you'll see.

    Duminy's catch was better, but Voges' catch was exceptional too, its not everyday fielders pull off catches like those near the boundary rope, and in Voges' case, not only did he pull off that catch in the T20 against BC, but he also pulled off a similar catch in a ranger cup game just a few weeks ago before taking the catch to dismiss McCullum.

    The only difference is the in the T20 game he caught the ball himself, whereas in the ranger cup game he poopped it back to Doropoulos.
