The Bengal Tigers had a dismal run on this tour of South Africa as they first lost the two-match Test series 2-0 and then stood on the losing side in three-match ODI series as well.

The South African team did not just win every series in all formats against Bangladesh but they also did it in style. Miller hit five sixes off the first five balls.

"It's a really special feeling", Miller told SuperSport. The 28-year old batsman who is nicknamed Killer Miller was dropped on zero in South Africa's 100th T20 global took just 35 balls to score his remarkable T20I century which became the fastest ever in the shortest format of the game. KL Rahul was just one ball behind as the batsman reached the historic ton in just 46 balls. Miller said. "Don't quite know what went on there but I was just trying to watch the ball and back myself". It seems the Bangladeshi cricketer Mohammad Saifuddin was his most favourite bowler in the match as he smashed him for five consecutive sixes.

The only players to hit six sixes in an over in an global are South Africa's Herschelle Gibbs and India's Yuvraj Singh.
