South Africa Beat India in T20 WC: David Miller scored an unbeaten 59 off 46 balls as South Africa beat India by 5 wickets in Perth on Sunday. A 76-run stand between Aiden Markram and David Miller helped the Proteas recover from 24 for 3 in their chase of 134 runs.
Aiden Markram fell shortly after his fifty, but David Miller stayed until the end to finish the game. When Rohit Sharma chose to bat first, Suryakumar Yadav’s 68 off 40 balls helped India post 133 for 9 against South Africa. Lungi Ngidi had returned figures of 4 for 29.
India (Playing XI): Rohit Sharma (c), KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik (w), Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Arshdeep Singh
South Africa (Playing XI): Quinton de Kock (w), Temba Bavuma (c), Rilee Rossouw, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Tristan Stubbs, Wayne Parnell, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, Anrich Nortje
In the final over, Rohit Sharma and Bhuvneshwar Kumar would have an animated conversation over the field as India needed to defend 6 runs. To warm up, Bhuvneshwar would do a mock run-up. He wanted to talk one more time.
He continued to wave his arms. It’s all set. Off ran Bhuvneshwar to Wayne Parnell, who attempted to get the strike back to David Miller with an on-side dab, but the ball rolled off the pad. When Parnell wanders off for a run, Miller tells him not to be suicidal and to get back.
A dab to the off gets Miller on strike, needing 5 from 4. There are prayers in the crowd, and some people are tense. Rohit chats in the middle.
Miller swiveled into a pull and it flew off the edge to fine-leg boundary. He winced and held his head.
Miller finishes off the next ball with a slice past point, roars, punches gloves, and hugs Parnell. In addition to being an IPL hero, David Miller is now South Africa’s world-cup hero.
