David Miller posts an apology for RR fans after leading GT to IPL 2022 final

The Indian Premier League is almost at the verge of its season with the top 4 teams playing qualifiers to get to the final. The first qualifiers were played Tuesday at Eden Gardens Kolkata between Gujarat Titans and Rajasthan Royals. Gujarat won the toss and elected to bowl first as they were quite successful in run chases throughout the tournament.

RR batted well the first innings setting a target of 188/6 on the board which is quite massive. Wonderful knocks were seen from the orange cap holder Jos Buttler and the skipper Sanju Samson. They scored 89 and 47 respectively.

Coming to defend the total against GT was quite challenging for RR even though with a world class bowling unit as GT are in tremendous form. And the same happened. Though RR managed to take the first wicket early, the middle order batsman took their team over the line. With Hardik Pandya at one end David Miller at the other the both played innings match winning like they are known for. Both set a partnership of 106 runs for the 5th wicket and finished the match in style.

The match went deep with 16 runs required in the last over. Prasidh Krishna came into the attack for Rajasthan Royals to defend but David Miller got his plans set. The left hander South African finisher smashed the first three balls out of the park to confirm the victory for GT and their ticket to the finals. David Miller was also named the man of the match.

Today David Miller posted a tweet for his former team after defeating them in the qualifiers 1. Miller posted, “Sorry #RoyalsFamily”. Trolling his previous team he posted that tweet and fans had their hilarious reactions on it.

After the match, GT skipper, Hardik Pandya said, “A lot of people counted David Miller out but for us he was always a match-winner from the time we brought him in the auction. What he did today, we always expected him to do that. But for us it was important to give him importance, love and clarity that what we expect of him and if he fails it’s okay, ‘it’s just a game’.”
