• Miller returns to scene of record ton

    South African David Miller isn’t necessarily banking on a big score, but is eager to impress in Friday’s second T20I against Zimbabwe.

    Miller was rested for the recent ODI series against the same opposition and scored a brisk 39 in the T20I series opener at Buffalo Park earlier this week.

    The venue for the second T20I, Potchefstroom’s Senwes Park, is where the big-hitting left-hander struck a record-breaking century against Bangladesh last year.

    ‘It is the first game of the season for this wicket. We are going to have to try and assess the conditions as quickly as possible. Generally, it is a nice wicket, the ball travels far with a quick outfield. It is always a batter-friendly wicket so hopefully it doesn’t disappoint,’ he said.

    Miller looked forward to playing alongside teammate Rassie van der Dussen again. Van der Dussen struck a fine half-century on international debut in East London.

    ‘The guys bowled well in the last game, I felt it was tough to get the spinners away. I thought Rassie and I had good intensity which is what we focused on,’ he added.

    ‘He batted well in his first game, he has shown it over the years for the Lions and it is great to have another partner there when you are going well. We complemented each other pretty well.’
