South Africa v Bangladesh: David Miller hits fastest worldwide Twenty20 century

AB de Villiers South Africa

David Miller smashed the record for the quickest century in a Twenty20 global as South Africa completed a clean sweep of victories against Bangladesh, winning by 83 runs in the second and final T20I. Miller has broken fellow South African Richard Levi's record for the fastest T20I ton. In reply, a shell-shocked Bangladesh never attained any momentum as they were bundled out for 141 in 18.3 overs.

Miller smashed his ton off just 35 balls, hitting seven fours and nine maximums in the process.

The victory completed South Africa's first clean sweep against a touring team as they won every match across Tests, one-day internationals and T20s.

The left-hander came to the crease at the fall of the third wicket with the score at 73-3, and made the visitors pay after Mushfiqur Rahim dropped him on nought off Rubel Hossain's bowling.

In his merciless bashing of Bangladeshi bowlers, Miller scored 31 runs against Mohammad Saifuddin, who bowed the 19th over where he was smashed all around the Senwes Park with 5 sixes, making Miller only the second batsman after Yuvraj Singh to hit 5 or more sixes in an over. I think I could have been out twice in the first 10 balls.

"Obviously a really special feeling".

David Miller scored the fastest hundred in worldwide T20 cricket off 35 deliveries - including five maximums in a row in the 19th over - to finish 101 not against Bangladesh.

Bangladesh won the toss and put South Africa in to bat, with Hashim Amla (85) leading the way as a series of batting partners - Mangaliso Mosehle (5), JP Duminy (4) and AB de Villiers (20) - struggled to do any considerable damage.
