Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) player David Miller acknowledges that his century against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2013 was one of his most unforgettable innings. The South African batsman, who was the only foreign player retained by the franchise, added that he was happy to play along-side a “superhero” like Virender Sehwag.

In an interview with the Times of India, Miller said, “The century against RCB  last year was definitely one of my most memorable innings. I wouldn’t quite call it my defining knock but my career has certainly developed at the right pace over a period of time since that ton.”

On being asked about the pressure that came with being retained, Miller said, “I have enjoyed a great time with the team over the last couple of years. It really feels good to be retained by the team but I don’t think it brings any extra pressure. The only pressure that’s there is to keep on performing at my best.”

Miller went on to talk about how he was flexible when it came to batting anywhere in the line-up. “I am a complete team man and I’ll be prepared to bat anywhere, even open. In T20 [Twenty20], it always helps to get a few deliveries to get one’s eyes in,” he said.

He was generous in his praise of the IPL, saying that it allowed him to play with certain superheroes. “One of the beauties of IPL is the fact that we get to play alongside some of the superheroes of the game and Viru is definitely one of those. I’ll try my best to learn as much as I can from him,” Miller said.

Miller concluded by talking about his Punjab skipper, George Bailey. “George is also finding his way around a new team. We all know that he is a good man-manager and he’s trying to get to know his team-mates and how best to utilize them. He’s discussed some good ideas and let’s see how they turn out for the team,” he said.
