David Miller Strikes The Fastest Third Century At The IPL
David Miller’s hard work has paid off during this IPL. He left Bangalore stunned by slamming 101 off 38 balls, the fastest third century at the IPL games this season. He has remembered to always follow his father’s advise, ‘If it is in the arch, it is out of the park. If it is in the V, it is in the tree’. On Monday, Miller was able to ravage the bowlers of Royal Challenger’s Bangalore, almost single handedly to take on the Kings XI Punjab and end in a resounding and unexpected six wicket win. In the line-up, he came in to bat as the fourth batsman and chased a nice 190 runs. At 51 for 3 in 7.4 over’s, his side was in quite an uncomfortable spot. David Hussey was the partner he lost during the 10th over, but despite this he decided to unleash a real carnage and sent the ball flying out of the cricket field, thereafter. He struck seven sixes and eight boundaries just leaving the local fans screaming with joy while the visitors remained stunned in silence.
When David spoke after the match, he said that since a year and a half, he has been working extremely hard to get himself to this level and explode this manner. He is extremely thankful to Lord Jesus Christ and is very happy with the result that came off. In the 14th over, the Bangalore captain had dropped him, but this twenty three year old gave a flawless knock and looked towards just going straight. David says that’s when ViratKohli dropped him, he felt a bit lucky. The total was a big one to achieve and at the same time even Sathish put in a very good effort. David’s aggression rubbed off on very well on Sathish and he too hit some very big shots towards the end. The win was finally brought in by the South African with a straight six and in the process the century also was completed.
