DAVID MILLER wrote his name into the annals of the shortest format when he smashed the fastest ever century in the history of T20 worldwide cricket to set the Standard Bank Proteas up for an 83-run victory in the final match of the Bangladesh tour at Senwes Park on Sunday.

"I was scratchy to be honest in the beginning and towards the back end it turned out to be sweet".

35 - David Miller's 35-ball century is the quickest in T20I history by breaking Richard Levi's record of a century in 45 balls against New Zealand in 2012. Miller said. "Don't quite know what went on there but I was just trying to watch the ball and back myself".

"It's a really special feeling", Miller told SuperSport.

5 - Number of consecutive sixes David Miller has hit in the 19th over of their innings against Mohammad Saifuddin. He despatched the first five balls from Saifuddin into the capacity crowd but could not get his bat under the sixth and had to settle for a single.


David Miller scored the fastest hundred in global T20 cricket off 35 deliveries - including five maximums in a row in the 19th over - to finish 101 not against Bangladesh. He provided an early chance to Bangladesh but was dropped at 0 by Mushfiqur Rahim and he made them pay badly.

But it started very differently after Bangladesh skipper Shakib Al Hasan won the toss and chose to field.

The South Africans ended on 224/4 in their 20 overs at Potchefstroom. We need to learn a lot from this.

83 - The 83-run margin is the 2nd highest by which Bangladesh have lost a T20I game.

In fact, the Proteas can now brag with three of the fastest centuries in the worldwide format.
