David Andrew Miller is a South African left handed middle order batsman and off spin bowler. Young David Miller fast-fire batting shows for his national side Dolphins and subsequently for South Africa A on their tour of Bangladesh prompted selector Andrew Hudson to include him as Wayne Parnell’s substitute in 2010 in the Proteas tour of West Indies. Known as a T20 expert, both on the front and back foot, Miller loves playing a broad range of strokes.
Miller top scored 33 in a game that South Africa won by a single run in his debut T20I match. It prompted his participation in ODIs and then, against the West Indies, he produced his ODI debut. Some remarkable slogging helped South Africa set tough numbers in its first two outings that they ultimately went on to win.
David Miller was appointed in the 2011 preliminary team of the ICC Cricket World Cup in South Africa but did not appear in the final 15 to make it into the series. Miller returned to the ODI team on the back of his enhanced ball striking and his capacity to manage pressure cooker situations after a hiatus of more than a year. This capacity was shown when Miller performed some amazing knocks for the Mohali franchise in the Indian T20 League. His league games finish was of the greatest quality that underlined his destructive prowess.
One of those innings saw him take the cleaners ‘ bowling assault to give his team an unlikely win. In addition to his Indian T20 league outing, he had stints in Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and England T20 tournaments. Mohali restored Miller’s faith when he was one of the two players they held in front of the 2014 auction.
