David Miller is one of the finest finishers in white-ball cricket and whenever he gets going, it is pretty hard to stop him. However, in a crucial semifinal against the Aussies in World Cup 2023, the man had to the the bulk of the job as he walked out to the middle with South Africa in tatters at 24-4.

The experienced Miller though showed no signs of nerves and delivered a splendid counter-punch along with Klaasen initially and then almost single-handedly. His partnership of 95 runs for the fifth wicket brought South Africa back on track but then South Africa kept losing wickets regularly, even though Miller at the other end, showed great maturity mixing caution with aggression. He ended up hitting a stunning century which has provided South African some hope going into the second half.

Miller initially hit some clean blows against Zampa and then took on pacers as well. His knock filled with great flair and usual Miller swag, took South Africa past 200 as the he got decent support from Gerald Coetzee as well.  Miller eventually got to his century with a massive six against the Australian skipper Pat Cummins in the 48th over.

It was a short delivery on off by Cummins, that sat up nicely for Miller and he pulled it all the way over deep mid-wicket for a maximum. He departed in the same over on 101 off 116 balls with eight fours and five sixes in it, but his knock has ensured a fighting total for South Africa.
