- David Miller got a big responsibility
- Paarl Royals elected captain
- Gujarat had won the title
T20 League: Rajasthan Royals-owned Paarl Royals on Sunday announced the appointment of veteran South African batsman David Miller as the captain for the first season of the new T20 league SA20 organized by Cricket South Africa (CSA). This league will start in January next year. Most of the teams in this league are going to be owned by the IPL franchise itself.
Gujarat had won the title
Miller had a stellar performance in the IPL 2022 season and helped Gujarat Titans win the title by scoring 481 runs in 16 matches at a strike rate of 142.73 in the first attempt. Let us tell that on the strength of Miller’s strong game, the Gujarat team won the IPL trophy in its very first season. In IPL 2022, this team was commanded by Hardik Pandya. On the other hand, Miller, who led South Africa to a 2-1 victory in the three-match T20 series against England under his captaincy in August, is now ready for a new challenge.
Captaining the Barbados Royals
Miller is currently captaining the Barbados Royals in the current season of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL). Miller has been one of the best finishers in the game and is clearly excited to lead the Royals in his country. The Paarl-based franchise has given the captaincy role to 33-year-old Miller, who was one of two South African players signed by the team ahead of the auction.
I’m proud – Miller
Miller said of his appointment, “I am extremely proud to be appointed captain of Paarl Royals. It is a great pleasure for me. The people of Paarl and the Western Cape as a whole are great supporters of quality and recreational cricket. And my ambition will be to lead the team in the right way and give my fans countless memories to make their team happy.” Head coach JP Duminy, former South African Miller’s teammate, expressed his happiness over being the captain of the Royals.
“David is one of the best players you’ll meet, and knowing about the conditions is something that will be very valuable to us,” he added.
