Proteas star David Miller backed up his 118 not out against Australia with his best ever first-class score, 177, on debut for the Knights.
The 27-year-old’s form with the bat reached new heights on the weekend, this after crushing the Aussies barely two weeks ago. His batting average was an underwhelming 33 going into his first-ever match for the side from Bloemfontein, but it’s now on the rise as he looks to enjoy a lengthy stint with his new franchise with the Proteas playing in the longer format Down Under.
His 177 came off just 195 balls as the Knights posted 572 all out. Miller has merely strengthened an already competitive outfit as the Knights look to win their first Sunfoil Series trophy for nine years.
With Miller now comfortably back in the ODI setup after being dropped for the Tri-Nation series in July, perhaps an extended run with the willow in the longest format might see him creep into the national selectors’ minds in the not-too-distant future.
