Hi guys, just watched the Dolphins' innings in the semi final T20 Ramslam.

In the third ball of the 11th over David Miller walks to the crease. Dolphins are on 74/2.

A couple of wicket fall and the Dolphins consoloidate. By the end of the 16th over, the Dolphins are on 114/4 and Miller is on 24 runs off 20 balls.

This is the rest of his innings.

Over 17) 6, 6, 1, 1
Over 18) 6, 6, 6, 4, 6, 6
Over 19) 1, 1
Over 20) 4, 6, 4, 1, 4

Miller ends his innings on 93* of 37 balls, his last 17 balls brought 69 runs.

It is one of the most devastating finishes to an innings I have seen.

The last four overs brought 84 runs to finish on 200/4

It's Miller time!! Looked ridiculous, tonight.

Been a tough Ram Slam for me, Biltong - My beloved Lions have pretty much gone out with a limp... On the bright side, at least it's prepared me for another rough S15 season with my other Lions.

I actually haven't been able to watch much of it, but seeing there wasn't much on tonight I thought I watch a bit and was just in time to see him bat.

Quite incredible innings from him.

That will help his auction price Very Happy 

Unless he is a retained player. Not sure.

Only about 20-40 players are capable of that.

Thanks.

Shame and without the cap you could have:

Gayle
Warner
Kohli
Finch
KP
Miller
Dhoni
Johnson
Steyn
Malinga
Narine.

What a T20 team.

David Miller's already been retained by Punjab Kings XI for around £1m per season for the next 3 years.

Not a T20 lover, but might watch this time, especially if KP joins RCB. Gayle, Kohli, KP, AB...WOW.

I don't think RCB can afford KP. 

They've retained Gayle, Kohli, ABDV and one other

KP will probably end up at Delhi again.

Who was the lucky chap who bowled the eighteenth ?

Thanks KR!

I thought I was all over when Sybrand Engelbrecht was going ballistic! But Kyle Abbott was superb at the death, and Robbie Frylinck just held his nerve!

If all the Proteas would've been available, Dolphins probably would've lost. I wouldn't been pretty stiff if Amla had played against us though!
