Potchefstroom: David Miller smashed the fastest century in Twenty20 worldwide cricket as South Africa outclassed Bangladesh by 83 runs in the second and final Twenty20 global at Senwes Park on Sunday.
Compatriot Richard Levi had previously held the record, having taken 45 deliveries to reach his century against New Zealand in 2012. "In the first ten balls I could have been out twice". Miller's maiden worldwide hundred in the shortest format of the game came off just 35 deliveries as he smashed the Bangladeshi bowlers to all parts of the ground.
Miller's 35-ball hundred propelled South Africa to 224 for four before Bangladesh were bowled out for 141.
In the final game of the tour, Miller hit five sixes in a row in the 19th over, and nine sixes and seven fours in all in his record-breaking innings. "When I got to the fourth six, I did think about making it six sixes in the over".
Bangladesh wicketkeeper Mushfiqur Rahim dived to his right and appeared to have caught the ball but lost control as he landed on the ground.
