David Miller was one of Glamorgan’s overseas players when they reached T20 Finals Day at Edgbaston in 2017, but the South African remarkably did not face a ball on Welsh soil during his stint with the Welsh county.
The South African international made a feisty fifty on his Glamorgan debut at Bristol against Gloucestershire with his efforts earning him the Man-of-the-Match Award, and David followed this up with a boundary-laden and unbeaten 43 against Kent at Canterbury. With Glamorgan’s top-order seeing their side to victory and other games at Cardiff being washed out, Welsh fans did not get a chance to see the hard-hitting left-hander bat at Sophia Gardens.
This was also the case in the quarter-final of the competition where the Welsh county routed the Leicestershire Foxes and did not require the batting of David, who had travelled 6,000 miles by helicopter, aeroplane and car the previous afternoon from Potchefstrom having represented South Africa A against their counterparts from India. David was also dismissed for a duck in the semi-final against the Birmingham Bears on T20 Finals Day at Edgbaston.
In all, David has played in 132 One-Day Internationals and 75 International T20s for South Africa, besides having a stint with Yorkshire during 2012 as well as playing in many other T20 franchises around the world.
