Miller heads back to Dolphins

South Africa big-hitter David Miller has returned to Durban franchise the Dolphins following two seasons with the VKB Knights.

Left-hander Miller, who has played county cricket for Durham, Yorkshire and Glamorgan, has become a mainstay of the Proteas' white-ball teams earning 165 international caps.

"My two seasons with the Knights were great and they were just what my career needed," Miller said. "My time there challenged me in different areas but it was quite an easy decision for me to come back to Durban.

"I do a lot of travelling as it is and so the travel between Durban and Bloemfontein became an issue and I am happy to be back where it started for me."

The Dolphins shared South Africa's one-day Momentum Cup last winter and were beaten finalists in the RAM SLAM T20 Challenge.

"The Dolphins had a good season in white-ball cricket last year and they are building something special and I am looking forward to adding to that this season.

"I have heard a lot of good things about (coach) Grant Morgan and his passion for the game and his work ethic beyond training and matches."

Six months ago, Miller blasted the fastest hundred in Twenty20 internationals - a 36-ball effort against Bangladesh in Potchefstroom.

Meanwhile, South Africa are 7/1 to win the 2019 World Cup in England, with the Proteas 6/1 to triumph at the ICC World Twenty20 a year later.
