David Miller Hits Century in High-scoring Contest But IND Clinch SeriesIndia won the second T20I by 16 runs against South Africa on Sunday to gain an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series. Despite David Millers’ outstanding century in 46 balls, the Africans were stopped at 221 for 3 in 20 overs.

David Miller was the star for South Africa as he blazed away to the unbeaten century. The game went out of reach when Rohit Sharma and company were only 12 balls away from sealing the series.KL Rahul began in style, hitting the first delivery of the innings for a four. A 96-run stand with captain Rohit Sharma followed for the first wicket. The two departed in quick intervals. But then Suryakumar Yadav took over as he put on a memorable display by clubbing five fours and as many sixes in a blistering 22-ball 61. Virat Kohli was a mute observer as SKY did his things but then joined the fun with an unbeaten 49 off 28 – seven fours and a six. Dinesk Karthik’s short and sweet cameo of 17 not out pushed the final total to a humongous 238/3.

Choosing to bowl first, South Africa had a poor start in the run fest that saw over 450 runs being scored collectively by both the teams at Barsapara Cricket Stadium, Guwahati.
