Miller smashes record ton in T20 International

Tuesday, October 31, 2017

POTCHEFSTROOM, South Africa - South Africa middle-order batsman David Miller smashed the record for the fastest century in Twenty20 International cricket as South Africa thumped Bangladesh by 83 runs yesterday for a clean sweep of the two-match series.

Miller, who was dropped on zero, reached his ton off 35 balls, beating the previous best mark of 45 deliveries set by compatriot Richard Levi against New Zealand in 2012.

South Africa managed 224 for four off their 20 overs, with Miller not out 101 from 36 balls as he crashed seven fours and nine sixes.

Bangladesh were in trouble early in their reply and never recovered as they were bowled out for 141 in 18.3 overs.

Five of Miller's sixes came in one over off Bangladesh seamer Mohammad Saifuddin as he showed remarkable timing in smashing the ball to all parts of the ground.
