David Miller blasts fastest T20 global hundred in South Africa's 100th T20I

DAVID MILLER wrote his name into the annals of the shortest format when he smashed the fastest ever century in the history of T20 global 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.

224/4 - South Africa's total of 224 is the highest Bangladesh have conceded in a T20I game.

It was the first time that South Africa had won every game in three series against a touring team, Cricket South Africa said.

The result sees South Africa wrap up a 2-0 victory in the T20I series and a comprehensive whitewash of the tourist.

"Anything over 200 is good, good wicket here in Potch".

And Miller made the most of his lucky escape, hitting seven fours and nine sixes, including five consecutive maximums in the penultimate over bowled by Mohammad Saifuddin.

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.

"Obviously a really special feeling". "I tried to watch the ball and back myself".

He hit Rubel Hossain for two back to back boundaries and then whipped one wide of long-on for a brace before finally driving one wide of sweeper cover for a two and bringing up his century off just 35 balls. He also came within one hit of matching Yuvraj Singh's performance of hitting 6 sixes in a single over.

Before Miller arrived South Africa was only 78-3. South Africa captain JP Duminy got out to Bangladesh skipper Shakib Al Hasan while Duminy returned the favour by dismissing Shakib in the 2nd innings.

Needing more than 11 an over from the start, Bangladesh didn't have the firepower to threaten the Proteas, a story that played out through most of the tour.
