Miller scored his century in just 35 balls in which he hit nine sixes and seven fours.

Miller's innings beat the previous quickest ton, scored by fellow countryman, Richard Levi, who held the record following his knock off 45 balls against New Zealand in Hamilton five years ago.

Bangladesh was left to seriously rue that it dropped Miller when he was yet to score, although it was a tough chance that wicketkeeper Mustafizur Rahim put down after a full-length dive. He started his innings slowly, playing a ideal foil to Hashim Amla, who was closing in on a hundred. Miller hit six sixes and four boundaries from the 16 balls he faced in this period.

5 - Number of consecutive sixes David Miller has hit in the 19th over of their innings against Mohammad Saifuddin.

Bangladesh came closest to something to celebrate when it went down by 20 runs in the first T20. He just missed out on becoming only the third batsman to hit six sixes in an over in worldwide cricket when he could only drive the final ball from Saifuddin through the covers for one.

Miller said: "It's a really special feeling". "I tried to watch the ball and back myself". It was scratchy at the start of my innings, towards the end it was sweet. 15 more runs came off the last 10 overs as Miller helped South Africa plunder a scarcely believable 146 runs in the last 10 overs, and 90 runs off the last five.

He also became the fifth Protea batsman to reach 1000 T20I runs after De Villiers, JP Duminy, Amla and Faf du Plessis.

Or if the bottom edge Miller got to Mahmudullah in the 15th over when he was 18 not out had trickled back onto his stumps or been collected by Mushfiqur in time to run him out.
