Bumrah's a threat to me, says Miller

“We've seen some high scores this year. And it's been incredible batting by a few teams and few individual players in this IPL. And look, I always see everyone judges a batter on the average," Miller stated.

Bumrah's a threat to me, says Miller

David Miller.


David Miller, a South African batter known for delivering maximum impact, thinks that in T20 cricket, averages will gradually become less significant, with strike rate emerging as the primary measure of success. 

 

Miller, renowned for his performance as a finisher for Gujarat Titans and the South African national team in recent years, has emphasised the evolving importance of strike rate in the game. 

 

The ongoing IPL season has seen an exceptional display of power-hitting, with batters achieving seven scores exceeding 250 runs. This surge in scoring has intensified the debate surrounding the significance of the strike rate in modern cricket.

 

“We've seen some high scores this year. And it's been incredible batting by a few teams and few individual players in this IPL. And look, I always see everyone judges a batter on the average," Miller stated. 

 

"But in T20 cricket, it can be difficult to judge someone purely on that. The top three batters, definitely can because of the number of overs they get to bat. When it comes to the middle order, it has always been the strike rates and what kind of impact the batter has had in the game."

 

“I suppose as we move forward, it becomes more and more about impact. How impactful are you in the game? Depending on the situation. If we need 15 and over, can you do it? And that's, I think, what guys are going to have to select teams on their match-winning ability,” said the 34-year-old.

 

Talking about the T20 World Cup next month, Miller is looking forward to intense battles with the likes of Jasprit Bumrah.

 

“There are so many good Indian players. But me being a batter facing the bowlers, Bumrah is bowling well at the moment. And he has been a world-class bowler for many years. He's a threat to me, as well as every other batter in the World Cup,” said the southpaw.

 

He also showered praise on fellow Titans' batter Sai Sudharsan, who is in the middle of his most productive season in the IPL.

 

“He's an incredibly talented player. Still got a long career ahead of him. I've enjoyed watching him play. I love the way that he preps. And just the build-up to games and how he goes about it. He's a very level-headed young boy that's got a lot of talent," said Miller.

 

The World Cup in the Americas will provide Miller and South Africa the opportunity to get their hands on an elusive global trophy. The hard-hitting batter is excited about the challenge.

 

“This team that we have at the moment has played a lot of cricket together the last couple of years and has a lot of confidence and a lot of success.

 

“We've got a lot of experience, guys that have been under pressure before and come through successfully. So, putting all the individuals together in a T20 World Cup, I have no doubt that we most certainly going to give it our best shot. We have the players to do it, the skill to do it." 

 

On his performances in ICC events, Miller added, "I love World Cups, I must be honest. I feel like I've done well at World Cups, personally. And I just want to continue the momentum.

 

"For you to say, finally, Killer Miller coming to life, I think I've done pretty well at previous World Cups."
