THE WEEK IN NUMBERS: MILLER BLAZES FASTEST T20I HUNDRED

Cricket by numbers...

35

The number of deliveries it took David Miller to crash a century against Bangladesh at Potchefstroom - the fastest hundred in T20I history. Miller hit nine sixes, including five in a row off Mohammad Saifuddin, finishing with 101* off 36 as South Africa won by 83 runs.

Miller time...

2nd

To make matters worse for Bangladesh, Miller was dropped second ball by Mushfiqur for nought...

7-0

That defeat meant that Bangladesh were beaten in every match, in every format in South Africa (two Tests, three ODIs, two T20Is).

Fastest hundreds in T20I history

212

Shane Dowrich (103) hit a maiden Test hundred, sharing a 212-run stand with Jason Holder (110) as West Indies drew with Zimbabwe.

This was only the second time in Test history that a No.8 and No.9 have both hit centuries in the same innings.

43-year-old Shivnarine Chanderpaul has signed a new one-year deal to remain with Lancashire for the 2018 season. The former West Indies batsman scored 831 runs at 51.94 in the County Championship this summer.
