David Miller Smashes Fastest T20I Ton Off Just 35 Balls

South Africa Bangladesh JP Duminy Shakib Al Hasan AB de Villiers sports news cricket Indian Express

Toss: Shakib Al Hasan, the Bangladesh captain, won the toss and opted to bowl in the second Twenty20 global against South Africa at Senwes Park, Potchefstroom on Sunday (October 29).

Compatriot Richard Levi had previously held the record, having taken 45 deliveries to reach his century against New Zealand in 2012.

Miller finished on 101 not out off 36 balls as South Africa set 224-4.

Bangladesh was 141 all out in 18.3 overs, another heavy defeat on a hard five-week tour for the visiting team.

Miller scored his century in just 35 balls in which he hit nine sixes and seven fours.

The Bangladesh skipper said that though teams struggle to perform well in an away series, his team was not able to compete on the South Africa tour.

Jose Mourinho Worried His Favorite Player Could Leave The Club
Phil Jones is available to face Spurs and Eric Bailly may also return, following both centre-backs' respective injuries. "After Ander's words and the feelings of all the players, I don't need speak about the words".

The victory completed South Africa's first clean sweep against a touring team as they won every match across Tests, one-day internationals and T20s.

"It's a really special feeling", Miller told SuperSport. KL Rahul was just one ball behind as the batsman reached the historic ton in just 46 balls. I think I could have been out twice in the first 10 balls.

David Miller scored the fastest hundred in worldwide T20 cricket off 35 deliveries - including five maximums in a row in the 19th over - to finish 101 not against Bangladesh. It seems the Bangladeshi cricketer Mohammad Saifuddin was his most favourite bowler in the match as he smashed him for five consecutive sixes.

Even more painful for Bangladesh was the fact that Miller was dropped on 0, when Mushfiqur Rahim couldn't grab a gloved chance down the leg-side.
