Toss: Shakib Al Hasan, the Bangladesh captain, won the toss and opted to bowl in the second Twenty20 worldwide against South Africa at Senwes Park, Potchefstroom on Sunday (October 29). He beat the record of fellow South African Richard Levi, who scored a century off 45 balls against New Zealand in 2012.

Bangladesh was 141 all out in 18.3 overs, another heavy defeat on a hard five-week tour for the visiting team.

Miller's undefeated 101 flew off 36 balls and was spiked with nine sixes and seven fours.

The Bengal Tigers had a dismal run on this tour of South Africa as they first lost the two-match Test series 2-0 and then stood on the losing side in three-match ODI series as well.

While talking to SuperSport television the South African batter said, "I was pretty scratchy to begin with", "But towards the back end it came out quite sweet". Miller said. "Don't quite know what went on there but I was just trying to watch the ball and back myself". Miller joined Evin Lewis and Yuvraj Singh as the only cricketers to hit five or more sixes in an over in a T20l.

The 28-year-old just had a solitary fifty in 56 T20Is before this match but brought up his third T20 century in stunning fashion as he carted the penultimate over of the innings for 31 runs, including five successive sixes off the first five balls of the over.

Bangladesh: Imrul Kayes, Soumya Sarkar, Shakib Al Hasan (capt), Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Sabbir Rahman, Mahmudullah, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mehidy Hasan, Taskin Ahmed, Liton Das, Rubel Hossain.

Bangladesh won the toss and put South Africa in to bat, with Hashim Amla (85) leading the way as a series of batting partners - Mangaliso Mosehle (5), JP Duminy (4) and AB de Villiers (20) - struggled to do any considerable damage.
