David Miller played the knock of his life as he smashed a 79-ball 118 to help South Africa gun down Australia’s 371/6, and take an unassailable 3-0 in the five-match series in Durban. The hosts were off to an ideal start in the chase with both Quinton de Kock and Hashim Amla making brisk contributions. Things however took a different turn when the visitors hit back with quick wickets. It wasn’t looking good for the Proteas before Miller arrived and did what he does best – inject urgency into the innings. He stitched a match-winning partnership with Phehlukwayo (42*) and helped his side cross the line. Earlier, Australia rode on tons from Steve Smith and David Warner to put up the mammoth total. Bowlers from both sides struggled and even Dale Steyn wasn’t spared. The experienced campaigner went for 96 in his quota of overs and was hit for nine fours and five sixes in the process.
