South African batter David Miller is currently enjoying his time in the T20 World Cup.

He wants South Africa to seal a semi-final berth by winning the all-important game against Pakistan tomorrow.

Miller is South Africa’s standout performer with the bat and has scored 61 runs in two innings in Australia along with Quinton de Kock and Rilee Rossouw also having 111 and 109 runs respectively.

The Proteas batter is going to play a huge role in tomorrow’s game against Pakistan.

Speaking in a press conference, Miller said,

We are finding lots of ways to win, we have done it over a period of time now. I would say probably the past year, we found ourselves in tricky situations and managed to get over the line.

Miller discussed a lot about how the team manages to do well even if there is a collapse for them.

On the other hand, if there are tight match situations, Miller’s mantra is to slow the game down.

It is about slowing the game down and understanding what is required right now. In the past maybe it could have become a bit hasty. I really struggled upfront, whereas Aiden was playing really well.

Miller praised fellow South Africa Aiden Markram a lot during the press conference.

It helped that Aiden was going really well and picked up one boundary and there was momentum. It’s about weathering the storm. I have been in a lot of different situations in my career and it’s about making sure you are really in the moment and (knowing) what is required.

He then talked about the pacers and South Africa’s bowlers who have created havoc on the opposition in the tournament so far.

Being in Australia and with regards to the conditions we’ve got here, our pace attackers have done great things over the years and the guys have managed to come into their own and bowling with great energy, a lot of pace and that’s what we need here in Australia.
