Cape Town - Proteas batsman David Miller says he was delighted claim the fastest T20 global century ever in the second T20I against Bangladesh on Sunday. The 28-year old batsman who is nicknamed Killer Miller was dropped on zero in South Africa's 100th T20 worldwide took just 35 balls to score his remarkable T20I century which became the fastest ever in the shortest format of the game.

Miller's 36-ball 101 - his 100 came off 35 - propelled South Africa to 224 for four before Bangladesh was bowled out for 141, completing a sweep for the hosts in two Tests, three ODIs and two T20Is.

Bangladesh was 141 all out in 18.3 overs, another heavy defeat on a hard five-week tour for the visiting team.

Miller hit nine sixes, including five off successive balls from Mohammad Saifuddin, and seven fours at Senwes Park.

All through the series, Bangladesh's batsman struggled against the home side's pace bowlers.

He said he saw at least three armed men in military uniforms running toward the hotel after the suicide bombing at its gate. The US has been actively involving in trying to combat the group, launching 20 drone strikes.

The result sees South Africa wrap up a 2-0 victory in the T20I series and a comprehensive whitewash of the tourists.

He provided an early chance to Bangladesh but was dropped at 0 by Mushfiqur Rahim and he made them pay badly. He just missed out on becoming only the third batsman to hit six sixes in an over in global cricket when he could only drive the final ball from Saifuddin through the covers for one. South Africa's total was the joint 13th highest in T20 internationals with Miller's century and opener Hashim Amla hitting 85 off 51 balls.

Miller said: "It's a really special feeling". The famous record was previously held by his counterpart Richard Levi, who smashed his century in just 45 balls against the Kiwis in 2012.
