What a story it has been for David Miller this season!!! He has turned back the clock as the fans are witnessing the vintage Killer-Miller in the IPL 2022. From going unsold in the first round of the mega-auction to getting picked by Gujarat Titans and then turning them into serial winners, the South African batter has scripted a remarkable story for ages.
On Tuesday night, David Miller once again donned his finisher’s hat and took the debutants Gujarat Titans to the IPL final in their very first season. The left-handed southpaw blasted his way to unbeaten 68 runs off 38 deliveries, including five maximums to take his side over the line.
For the unversed, Gujarat Titans and Rajasthan Royals met in Qualifier 1 of the IPL 2022 after finishing among the top two sides after the league stage. Batting first, Rajasthan Royals posted a daunting total of 188/6 in 20 overs. Chasing the total, the Titans were behind in the game but David Miller’s knock changed the complexion of the game.
With 16 runs required in the final over, the left-handed southpaw smashed Prasidh Krishna for three consecutive maximums on the first three deliveries to seal Gujarat Titans’ berth in the final.
Now, the South African finisher David Miller has apologized to his former franchise by posting a message on Twitter. The 32-year-old wrote, “Sorry #RoyalsFamily” after sinking his former team with a whirlwind knock.
Sorry #RoyalsFamily 🤷♂️
