South Africa is Really Confident, according to David Miller, ahead of the T20 World Cup

Despite their series loss to India, South Africa’s David Miller believes they are “very optimistic” heading into the Twenty20 World Cup this month. Miller’s unbroken 106 off 47 balls went in vain as India triumphed by 16 runs in Guwahati on Sunday, taking a commanding 2-0 lead in the three-match series.

The third T20, which takes place in Indore on Tuesday, is the penultimate encounter for both sides before the World Cup in Australia. Miller, a middle-order batsman, stated that losing the series will not impair their motivation for the World Cup. South Africa’s campaign begins on October 24.

There have been a lot of stories in the past, such as Australia not doing well before the World Cup (last year) and then winning the World Cup,” Miller, 33, told reporters. I don’t think there’s anything to be concerned about.” As I previously stated, there are a few areas that we can improve, and I believe this will always be the case.

“A lot of confidence is built in a number of areas”

Suryakumar Yadav’s 22-ball 61 to tear through the opposing bowling as India score a whopping 237-3 after being sent in to bat first on Sunday. Kagiso Rabada, Wayne Parnell, Lungi Ngidi, and Anrich Nortje of South Africa handed up 201 runs in 15 overs.

South Africa was 47-3 in reply when Miller and Quinton de Kock, who struck 69, put together an unbroken stand of 174 to give the hosts a fright. We’ve established a pretty nice team over the last year and a half, and we get along extremely well,” Miller continued.

We have excellent relationships, we’ve won a lot of series in the previous year, and losing the series was really frustrating, but we can walk away with our heads held high. Miller, known as “Killer” Miller for his ability to dismantle opposition bowling, hailed Suryakumar’s innings and feels the Proteas should benefit from his T20 hitting technique.

It comes down to bad execution at times to allow a top-class player like Surya a couple of freebies,” Miller said of his bowlers’ mistakes. We’re all humans, but we need to be a little tougher on ourselves and tighten up in a few places.” Surya’s knock was a great infusion for India, but it’s something we can learn from in the future game.”
