The intensity is still the same as it was more than a decade ago, when it started, but what has changed? David Miller It has the ability to “understand the game very well” and handle stress easily. Miller is enjoying his newfound star status after playing a key role in the Gujarat Titans’ 481-run IPL victory. More importantly, he has won at least four games as a finisher. “As many runs as I have scored, finishing two games is something I’ve been waiting for before the start of the IPL. Batting in the middle order, you want to finish the game. So mark this box. It’s nice to be here, “said Miller on the sidelines of South Africa’s five-match T20I series against India.
In the past, Miller’s lack of consistency has led to losses despite his great potential, but he doesn’t seem to have changed much in his game. But it is the understanding that has made the difference.
He said, “I would not say that I have done anything different. Now that I have lived a long time, the role I have played for so many years is growing and maturing. I think so. ” “I still get nervous and go through negative thoughts but I can deal with this pressure much better. What do I need to do to better understand my game.”
With five matches left for South Africa to complete 100 games in the shortest format, Miller feels he can bring peace to the changing room.
“For me, I’m trying to find peace in the transformation room myself, trying to make it clear to young boys just a few things about what they need to do better. From athletes and young people. Learning about their mentality, how they approach sports, “Miller added.
His IPL performance will not put any extra pressure on him. “I don’t have any extra pressure or weight on my shoulders. Every international game I’ve played, whether senior or junior, has always been a feeling of pressure. So I don’t think it changes. Much better. . ” A short holiday in the Maldives also helped a lot.
“It has been very difficult with a lot of IPL games but I am working hard on the physical side of things. I feel fresh and good going to Maldives after a two day break. Good, “he concluded.
