DAVID MILLER wrote his name into the annals of the shortest format when he smashed the fastest ever century in the history of T20 global cricket to set the Standard Bank Proteas up for an 83-run victory in the final match of the Bangladesh tour at Senwes Park on Sunday.

Miller finished on 101 not out off 36 balls as South Africa set 224-4.

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

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.

While South Africa gained valuable preparation under new coach Ottis Gibson ahead of tours by India and Australia, Bangladesh failed to live up to the promise it showed recently in home series. Even during the height of the Miller onslaught with wickets in hand the Proteas managed 90 in the last 5 overs. "It is a good wicket here in Potch", Miller said after the brutal ton.

In the 19th over of the innings, Miller struck the unfortunate Mohammad Saifuddin for five consecutive maximums but only got a single off the final ball to moans from the crowd.

Miller said: "It's a really special feeling".

Instead Miller rose from his back having scrambled to make his ground and swatted Mahmudullah's next ball over long-off for six. 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. He is the 3rd player in T20I format and the 6th in global cricket to hit five sixes in a single over. He provided an early chance to Bangladesh but was dropped at 0 by Mushfiqur Rahim and he made them pay badly.
