I’m more than just a hard-hitting batsman: David Miller

first_imgEven as David Miller comes back in the hut after a tiring net session, team mate Mitchell Johnson gives him a friendly pat and greets, “Killer Miller, how are you?” Miller doesn’t know if it’s a compliment or casual ribbing coming from a man who is Killer in his own ways with the ball in hand.”This one’s stayed the longest with me so seems to have fitted in. People seem to like it, so who am I to mind,” he reacts in a resigned tone over his cricketing nick name, ‘Killer Miller’, in this interview with Headlines Today. Professional sportsmen know it well. The best of sobriquets feel good when on song, work as a burden when off colour.The Proteas’ hard hitter in the middle order is now four seasons old but is still characterised by two innings – his 38 ball IPL hundred in 2013 and the century in this year’s World Cup against Zimbabwe when the batting was under serious pressure.Even though T20 cricket is the most rewarding format in the game financially, the quest to be called a complete cricketer matters as much to everyone. Even though sending the white leather ball out of the park may seem as a macho thing to do, even a Miller wants to prove that he can also graft. “In the past two years I have been trying to prove that while I love hitting the ball and clearing the ropes there’s a lot more to my cricket than just that. I have been working on hitting along the ground and rotating the strike,” he says.advertisementComing into bat after the Sehwag and Maxwell show for Kings XI, Miller puts in that extra effort in the nets to ensure his core strength doesn’t desert him. “The hitting ability has come naturally from an early age. But it’s something for which I have worked hard, it requires time and practice,” he explains his hard hitting prowess.The India IPL experience for Miller is not a big culture challenge any more. “I am from Durban. So the Indian food for one is something I am familiar with,” he says. The other incentive is learning ‘unmentionable hindi words’ from his Indian team mates, which may come in handy in an international against India.And unlike some of his Australian team mates, who are finding it tough to ring in their best game after a fulfilling World Cup win, for Miller, playing IPL immediately after, is better than dealing with World Cup wounds back home. “It was a bitter pill to swallow with the semis loss after giving so many months to the campaign. Look the World cup wasn’t the greatest of results but we have to take it on our chins.”The hustle and bustle of IPL is helping the healing process that bit faster.last_img read more
