South Africa’s David Miller smashes fastest T20 century
South Africa’s David Miller scored the century in 35 deliveries playing against Bangladesh, beating the record for fastest T20 century set by compatriot Richard Levi
Potchefstroom, South Africa: South Africa middle-order batsman David Miller smashed the record for the fastest century in Twenty20 International cricket when he reached the mark off just 35 balls against Bangladesh on Sunday.
Miller, who was dropped on zero, powered his side to 224 for four in their 20 overs as he finished unbeaten on 101 from 36 deliveries, with seven fours and nine sixes.
Five of those sixes came in one over off Bangladesh seamer Mohammad Saifuddin as Miller beat the previous quickest mark to a century of 45 balls by compatriot Richard Levi against New Zealand in 2012.
“It’s a really special feeling,” Miller told SuperSport. “I tried to watch the ball and back myself. I was scratchy to be honest in the beginning and towards the back end it turned out to be sweet.”
