David Miller needed just three balls to finish the game in Gujarat Titans’ favour in IPL 2022. GT required 16 runs off 6 balls, and Sanju Samson handed over the ball to Prasidh Krishna, who had bowled well until that over.
However, Miller destroyed Krishna’s confidence by hitting three sixes in a row to take the Titans to the final of the 15th season.
He broke Albie Morkel, Brad Hodge and MS Dhoni’s record of scoring most runs in the 20th over of a successful chase in IPL playoffs.
