The fact that Miller broke Levi’s record with 10 balls less shows the kind of domination the left-hander showed in the second T20I of the series.
A look at the quickest T20I hundreds:
35 balls – David Miller
45 balls – Richard Levi
46 balls – Faf du Plessis/ KL Rahul
47 Balls – Aaron Finch/Chris Gayle
Miller’s century is the first century from someone batting at no 5 in T20Is. The previous best was by New Zealand all-rounder Corey Anderson. Anderson had hit an unbeaten 94 against the same opposition, Bangladesh, in Mt Maunganui earlier this year.
Interestingly, 81.19% of Miller’s runs came in boundaries: (7x4s, 9x6s). The first 50 came off 23 balls and the second 50 off just 12 balls as Miller went into overdrive mode.
The South Africans ended on 224/4 in their 20 overs at Potchefstroom. But funnily, the Proteas have earlier twice lost scoring 229/4 against England and 231/7 against the West Indies.
