David Miller may have struck a futile second T20 ton as the Proteas lost the second T20 against India by 16 runs in Guwahati on Sunday, but he also cruised past JP Duminy to become South Africa's highest run-maker in the format.

Miller, who owns the fastest T20 100 that he made against Bangladesh in 2018, passed Duminy in the process of making 106* off 47 balls.

At the start of the game, Duminy, who made 1 934 runs in 81 matches, was SA's leading run-maker in the format.

Duminy was also overtaken by De Kock, who is now second on SA's T20 run-making ladder with 1 964 runs after 71 matches.

De Kock made an unbeaten 69 off 48 balls with three fours and four sixes, but was more subdued in his knock.

Miller made his T20 debut against the West Indies in Antigua in 2010 and despite the various fluctuations in form, has remained a constant presence in the Proteas side in the past 12 years.

He is also the first player to pass the 100-game mark for the Proteas mark and should play a key role for the Proteas in the T20 World Cup in Australia.
