WATCH: David Miller at His Brutal Best in SA20

The match was evenly balanced with the Royals requiring 30 runs off the final 18 balls at 10 rpo. Royals skipper Miller once again stepped up for his team as he was particularly severe on his Sunrisers seamer Sisanda Magala in the 18th over. It was at this stage that Miller shifted gears and exploded with three sixes in the over. He changed the game in the Royals’ favour in just 5 balls as he scored 21 runs off it. The dynamic left-handed batter smashed  3 sixes, 2 doubles, and 1 single in 5 balls to make the equation easy for his team.

Miller started the destruction with a trademark straight drive down the ground and over the sightscreen. Magala opted to go wider of the off stump with his next delivery, but all it allowed Miller to do was throw his hands through the ball and it flew over the extra cover boundary. Two runs were scored off the next delivery. It was followed up with which was thumped for another six over the mid-wicket boundary.

The carnage was not done yet with Miller taking a single off the fifth ball before Dane Vilas helped himself to a boundary off the final delivery to complete a 25-run over. Eventually, the Royals chased down the target in 18.5 overs. For his heroics with the bat in crunch situation, Miller was adjudged player of the match for his 37 (23).
