Miller salvo takes Dolphins into final

David Miller launched an astonishing assault on the bowlers to power into the final of the Ram Slam T20 Challenge with a 31-run win in Durban

Match Centre

In hindsight it's easy to say that van der Merwe's 34 run over was the over that did the difference, but it wasn't. It was those 92 runs in the last five overs that did the difference. It was stick cricket-esque, but the batting by Miller today was something else.

Titans were to slow to start the chase but Kuhn provided the acceleration required and threatened to take the game away from Dolphins. Shezi took his wicket and three wickets in the next over to signal the end of the chase. His ball to Morkel will be remembered for long time to come. It's indeed sad that Titans lost their last eight wickets for forty two runs

David Miller is the Man of the match.

Thanks for joining us today. Please do come back to join us for the final. Till then it's a good night from all of us here.

Abbott to Saeed Ajmal, OUT, fuller, faster and swinging in. Ajmal goes for the slog and misses. The leg stump is uprooted. There was a fleeting glimpse of Miller as sunk to his knees in elation and covered himself with his cap

Abbott to Saeed Ajmal, no run, shuffles across and looks to scoop it. He misses it

Frylinck to van Buuren, OUT, fuller and slower outside the off stump. van Buuren slices it straight into the hands of Delport at point. This is ending all too quickly now

Frylinck to Mosehle, OUT, slower and short ball outside the off stump. Mosehle pulls but doesn't get any power behind the shot. Miller runs in and takes the catch. He is everywhere
