David Miller went unsold on Day 1 of the mega auction but was recalled on the demand of the franchises. Gujarat Titans bought him for INR 3 crore after placing the highest bid for the veteran.
The southpaw hasn’t been at his best in the last few years, leading to fewer chances in the playing XI. However, he has been a completely different player in IPL 2022 and has won several games for his new franchise.
He scored an unbeaten 68 off 38 balls against Rajasthan Royals in Qualifier 1 to take his team to the final of the 15th season.
Miller shared an unbeaten 100+ partnership with captain Hardik Pandya. In 15 matches, Miller has accumulated 449 runs at an average of 64.14 and a strike rate of 141.19.
When he was asked to disclose the reason behind his success for GT, the South African batter said – “Opportunity, firstly. I have been given a good role and given an extended run. Have good backing from the outside. For my game, I am enjoying my role. I have played for a long time, but I understand my game better.”
