At one point in time, South Africa seemed to have lost the plot at Durban last evening against Australia during their chase of 158. However, flamboyant southpaw David Miller played an exceptional knock to defy Australia a victory. Miller, played an absolute blinder, in order to take South Africa home, after the top and middle order withered away.

Post the game, Miller admitted that he was simply thrilled with the knock. “There was pressure when I walked out to bat, but I wanted to take it deep and well, it worked for us. I was very confident that we could win the game if we took it towards the end.

You got to trust yourself, it’s never the same in the nets and you just have to trust your ability to do well when you get the opportunity. Glad that it worked out today,” said an ecstatic Miller. “I really enjoyed batting out there. There was a little dry period, not playing any games, but it was great to be out there today,” he said.

Skipper Faf Du Plessis too seemed elated and praised the lower order for their efforts. “The position they got us, we were 3-4 wickets down quickly and that’s how you don’t set an innings up. But our batting order is pretty long and the lower order once again came to the rescue. It’s good to win a game like this. Chris Morris has been doing this for a little while and I am really happy for David Miller. He is a world class player, a finisher for us and that’s what he did for us tonight,” he said.
