David Miller Smashes Fastest-ever T20 International Century

David Miller Smashes Fastest-ever T20 International Century”

He hit nine sixes, including five off successive balls from Mohammad Saifuddin, and seven fours.

David Miller hammered the fastest T20 century, breaking his compatriot Richard Levi's record, against Bangladesh on Sunday.

He registered his ton, the fastest ever in T20 global cricket, in the final over. Miller's century is also the joint third-fastest in all T20s; Chris Gayle and Andrew Symonds have scored centuries in the format in 30 and 34 balls respectively.

In fact, the Proteas can now brag with three of the fastest centuries in the global format.

Series: When Bangladesh arrived for their full series tour to South Africa in September, there was little to suggest that the matches would be one-sided affairs, especially considering the visitors' recent form in limited-overs cricket. Tabraiz Shamsi, the second spinner in the squad was likely to play in place of Aaron Phangiso, but pulled a hamstring in the lead-up to the match.

South Africa won the first match by 20 runs and now look set to win the ongoing second match too.

Amla then fell for a well-made 51-ball 85 and Miller upped the ante.

South Africa vs Bangladesh 2nd T20I will be broadcasted live on Sony Network from 1800 hrs IST on both SD and HD channels. An unbroken partnership of 62 between Farhaan Behardien (36 not out) and David Miller (25 not out) ultimately took South Africa's total beyond Bangladesh's reach. His knock was studded with 7 fours and 9 huge hits over the ropes. They earlier lost the Test series 2-0 and the ODI series 3-0.
