The hard-hitting South African David Miller enjoyed a great time with Gujarat Titans (GT) in the ongoing IPL 2022. He has so far amassed 449 runs with the highest score of 94* in 15 matches to play a key role in Gujarat Titans (GT) qualifying for the IPL 2022 Final.

Well, on Tuesday, May 24, Miller (68*) once again showed his killer batting, as he belted three consecutive sixes in the final over to take GT over the line with three balls to spare against Rajasthan Royals (RR) in the first qualifier of the ongoing IPL 2022 at Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

After his match-winning knock, Miller credited the new franchise and team management for his stunning run in the ongoing IPL 2022. Notably, he was warming the bench most of the time when he was part of RR in the 2020 and 2021 seasons.

David Miller said at the post-match presentation:I think opportunity, firstly (what's changed?). I've been given a role, I felt extremely backed from the outset. My personal game - I'm enjoying my role, I've been playing for many years now. Understanding my game a lot better. In high-pressure situations, you tend to go away from your game plan but I feel like I'm trying to keep everything together close to the game plan.”

On his performance vs RR, Miller said: “There has been a lot of going wide to me on the off-side, so I decided actually for the first time to step across. Backed me and went with it. The rest I tried to hit as hard as possible. That's the joys of IPL - you play for different teams, and get to meet different players.”

He signed off by saying, “It was a new team so there are a few butterflies here and there. From the first win, everything sort of aligned. You have to control what you can, can't think too much ahead. Concentrate on your breathing, and if it's in your area, you have to capitalize. We've got a few days off. There's a bus trip back, we'll have a few drinks and celebrate.”
