South Africa tour of India: David Miller hit a stunning 106 not out but it was not enough as India defended a record total of 237 to complete a 2-0 win over the Proteas. Suryakumar Yadav and KL Rahul hit blazing fifties for India in the high-scoring contest in Guwahati.


  • South Africa fell 16 runs short of India’s 237 in the 2nd T20I
  • David Miller hit 106 not out in just 47 balls in losing cause
  • India won a home T20I series against South Africa for the first time

Despite chatter over the selection and injury issues for T20 World Cup, India put their head down and came up with a comprehensive performance in the 2nd of a 3-match T20I series against South Africa in Guwahati on Sunday, October 2. After posting a record-setting 237 for 3 on the board, India restricted South Africa to 221 to take an unbeatable 2-0 lead in the series.

David Miller’s stunning 106 not out in 47 balls in a 174-run stand with Quinton de Kock was not enough as South Africa fell short of the total by 16 runs on an evening in which more than 450 runs were scored.

India scripted a bit of history on Sunday as they clinched their first-ever series victory over South Africa in T20I format at home. Rohit Sharma’s men seem to have bounced back strong after the disappointment at the Asia Cup, beating reigning world champions Australia 2-1 and taking an unbeatable lead vs South Africa.
