David Miller blows Bangladesh away with the fastest T20I century

Bangladesh have had a forgettable tour of South Africa and David Miller made it even worse before they flew back to their country. On the back of losses in all the 2 Tests, 3 ODIs and a T20I, the visitors were treated to a brutal show from the Proteas.

Shakib Al Hasan opted to bowl first after winning the toss and picked up 2 quick wickets himself. Hashim Amla played superbly and scored a half-century. AB de Villiers was looking good and just when he started hitting his stripes, he was dismissed for 20 in the 10th over as the scored read 78/3.

The fall of AB brought David Miller to the crease and what happened from then on was a sheer treat for the spectators at the Senwes Park, Potchefstroom. He was dropped for 0 by Mushfiqur Rahim that cost them big time.

The left-hander went absolutely berserk after getting his eye in and consistently cleared the fence. He struck five sixes in a row to Saifuddin in the penultimate over and narrowly missed out on the 6th one. But he missed one landmark only to achieve another. The 4th ball of the last over brought him the century off just 35 balls which turned out to be the fastest in the T20I cricket.

He ended up with 101 not out from 36 balls that took the side to a massive 224/4 after 20 overs. In reply, Bangladesh were no match for the hosts and could muster just 141 runs and fell short of the target by 83 runs to remain winless in the country.
