David Miller’s incredible three consecutive sixes in a match-winning knock for the Gujarat Titans was the highlight of South Africans’ recent overseas efforts.
His final-over heroics gave the Titans a seven-wicket win over the Rajasthan Royals in the first IPL qualifier on Tuesday.
With 16 needed off six deliveries, the Proteas batsman climbed into Prasidh Krishna in front of a capacity Eden Gardens crowd to finish on 68* off 38 balls.
On Wednesday, Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Faf du Plessis was dismissed for a first-ball duck and Lucknow Super Giants opener Quinton de Kock made just six off five balls as Bangalore won the IPL eliminator by 14 runs.
In England, Rilee Rossouw was the pick of the South Africans as he top-scored with a Man of the Match 88* for Somerset in a five-wicket win against Kent.
This match also featured a 29-run knock from spinner George Linde, who finished wicketless, along with Marchant de Lange and SA-born Netherlands international Roelof van der Merwe.
