  • Shakib feels the nature of the format can help Bangladesh overturn their fortunes

The previous record for the fastest T20I century was held by another South African batsman, Richard Levi who scored it in 45 but the southpaw eclipsed that record by 10 balls in his blistering knock.

Quinton de Kock scored his highest Twenty20 worldwide score of 59 to lead South Africa to a 20-run victory over Bangladesh on Thursday in the first game of the series. "I tried to watch the ball and back myself".

The 28 year-old Miller said after the game: "It is pretty special".

In the final game of the tour, Miller hit five sixes in a row in the 19th over, and nine sixes and seven fours in all in his record-breaking innings. This is the 3rd biggest margin in terms of runs for South Africa after their 130-run win against Scotland and 84-run win against England with both coming in 2009. They had earlier won the two-match Test series 2-0 and the three-match ODI series 3-0, making sure that they steamrolled the visitors in all three formats.

31 - The 31-run over by David Miller against Mohammad Saifuddin is the highest for South Africa in T20I cricket.

He hit Rubel Hossain for two back to back boundaries and then whipped one wide of long-on for a brace before finally driving one wide of sweeper cover for a two and bringing up his century off just 35 balls. Miller joined Evin Lewis and Yuvraj Singh as the only cricketers to hit five or more sixes in an over in a T20l.

Shakib Al Hasan and Saifuddin took wickets each for Bangladesh. De Kock scored his runs off 44 balls and shared an 79-run partnership with AB de Villiers as South Africa piled up a total of 195 for four after winning the toss. We need to learn a lot from this.
