David Miller was one of South Africa's standout batsmen in the second ODI against Zim on Tuesday. Although he has varied success in recent years, his star could finally be ignited if he continues from where he left off in Bulawayo.
South Africa wrapped up a 61-run win over Zimbabwe in Bulawayo on Tuesday, meaning they have the one-day series in the bag. It was a low-scoring affair, with just two South Africans passing the 40-run mark.
One of those players was David Miller, and were it not for a poor umpiring decision, he might have gone on to register a much higher score. It was an innings that has been a long time coming from a player who has shown so much promise. It had just the right amount of aggression, a fair bit of rotating the strike and it could not have come at a better time.
South Africa's plan is all about building towards the World Cup and looking for a special player. Miller has long been tipped to be that "X-Factor" batsman that would obliterate the opposition when they least expect it. If he manages to click soon, they'll be right on course....
