Gujarat Titans’ David Miller becomes the third South African to score a century of sixes in the Indian Premier League, following AB de Villiers and Faf du Plessis, in the 35th match of the 15th season against Kolkata Knight Riders.
In Gujarat Titans’ previous match, the big-hitting David Miller blasted away to a 51-ball 94 as they pulled off an astonishing come-from-behind three-wicket triumph over CSK.
Surprise-packages Gujarat Titans have dominated the IPL in their first season, owing to a well-assembled and well-coached team led by local hero Hardik Pandya’s all-round abilities. Their batting has outperformed expectations, with Hardik Pandya and David Miller of South Africa leading the way with outstanding performances in the first half of the season.
Hardik Pandya scored a half-century, but Gujarat were limited to 156/9 in 20 overs by Tim Southee and Andre Russell. After Shubman Gill (7) and Wriddhiman Saha (25) struggled to get going against the Kolkata bowling line at the DY Patil Stadium in Mumbai, GT skipper Pandya made his third straight half-century.
