Stats: David Miller smashes fastest T20I century

The powerful left-hander struck 101 off just 36 balls - his century coming off 35 balls - to beat compatriot Richard Levi, who did it in 45 balls against New Zealand in Hamilton in 2012.

Miller hammered the fastest century in T20 internationals - he reached 100 off 35 balls to smash the record by 10 balls - to propel South Africa to 224-4 batting first.

Chasing a mammoth 225 for a win, Bangladesh could only manage 141 all out in 18.3 overs.

South Africa vs Bangladesh 2nd T20I will be broadcasted live on Sony Network from 1800 hrs IST on both SD and HD channels.

The result sees South Africa wrap up a 2-0 victory in the T20I series and a comprehensive whitewash of the tourists. He went into the 20th over, needing 12 runs to complete a sensational century.

Harvey Weinstein sues his own company
She says she refused and when she later called him to turn down a role in one of his films, he became angry and verbally abusive. Judd was filming the movie Kiss the Girls when Weinstein invited her to a Beverly Hills hotel for "a business appointment".


South Africa captain Faf du Plessis, who did not play in the T20Is against Bangladesh, said he was proud of Miller's achievement. KL Rahul was just one ball behind as the batsman reached the historic ton in just 46 balls. "I tried to watch the ball and back myself".

The only players to hit six sixes in an over in an global are South Africa's Herschelle Gibbs and India's Yuvraj Singh.

Miller's five sixes off the first five balls of the 19th over from Mohammad Saifuddin helped him move from 57 to 88 in the space of an over.

Speaking after notching a maiden T20 century at Senwes Park, Miller said, "I'm really stoked to get the record, it's not something that you wake up and something you dream of every day".

Even more painful for Bangladesh was the fact that Miller was dropped on 0, when Mushfiqur Rahim couldn't grab a gloved chance down the leg-side.
