MILLER LEADS SOUTH AFRICA

The Sun (Malaysia) - - SPORTS -

DAVID MILLER hit a sen­sa­tional cen­tury as South Africa pulled off the sec­ond high­est ODI run-chase of all time yes­ter­day in a four­wicket tri­umph over Aus­tralia at Kingsmead. Miller hit 118 not out off 79 balls as South Africa chased down what had been a ground record 371 for six by Aus­tralia with four balls to spare. “It took a freak­ish in­nings to win the game. It was an amaz­ing knock,” said South African cap­tain Faf du Plessis. David Warner and skip­per Steve Smith hit cen­turies for Aus­tralia and seemed to have done enough to get their team back into the series af­ter los­ing the first two matches of the five-game series. "I said at the toss that we needed one bats­man to get a hun­dred and two of us did it," said Smith. "You don't lose too many games with 370 on the board but credit to South Africa. David Miller played an ab­so­lute blinder."
