South Africa vs Bangladesh, 2nd T20

AB de Villiers South Africa

Potchefstroom: David Miller smashed the fastest century in Twenty20 worldwide cricket as South Africa outclassed Bangladesh by 83 runs in the second and final Twenty20 global at Senwes Park on Sunday. It was scratchy at the start of my innings, towards the end it was sweet.

The previous fastest T20I century was made off 45 balls by his compatriot Richard Levi, against New Zealand in Hamilton in the 2011-12 season. I think I could have been out twice in the first 10 balls.

"Obviously a really special feeling".

Unhappily for Bangladesh he was dropped before he had scored a run but thereafter it wasn't just Miller Time, it was Miller day.

The 28-year-old required only 35 balls to reach three figures, finishing unbeaten on 101 from 36 deliveries as South Africa ended the innings at 224-4.




The South African threatened to take Bangladesh's attack apart thereafter, and latched upon some wayward bowling from Mohammad Saifuddin in the penultimate over by striking the first five balls over the fence for six, before hitting the last ball for a single.

Chasing a target of 225, too many of Bangladesh's top order underperformed, with Imrul Kayes, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim and Sabbir Rahman all hitting six or fewer. Hashim Amla and Miller put on 79 runs in just 6.4 overs before Amla became Saifuddin's second victim in the 17th over, caught at deep square leg off a slower ball for 85 off 51 balls.

Miller was only the fourth South African to hit a century in 100 T20 internationals.

Bangladesh scored 17 runs off the first over, bowled by Beuran Hendricks.

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