Gujarat Titans star David Miller said that he has managed to be successful against spin in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 can be attributed to his changed mindset and hard work. Miller is currently the second-highest run-scorer for GT with 449 runs from 15 matches, with his unbeaten 94 being his highest score. Skipper Hardik Pandya leads the chart with 453 runs from 14 games. And the South African said the hard work he had put in at the nets paid rich dividends.

During a pre-match press conference ahead of the IPL 2022 final, David Miller said, “It has been a good season for me against spin. I have never really felt that I struggled against spin, but it is an area I had to improve. ..I have changed my mindset against spin. I have changed one or two things. I feel like it is just about making sure, especially in T20 cricket, that I am looking to score every ball. If there is a bad ball at least I am in a good position to put it away.”

He further explained, “So that is one of the things mentally I have tried to improve. I have managed to bat from the start of the season and play all the games, so it has been enjoyable that I am not in and out (of the team). I have managed to build something the whole season and keep my confidence growing. I have been backed all the way. Playing all the games allows a player to settle down and really not worry about selection. I am loving being part of this successful team.”

David Miller attributed GT’s success in its debut season to the collective effort. They have been doing well in the ongoing IPL season.

Talking about the same, David Miller said, “It has obviously been a really good season. But for me, the standout has been Rahul Tewatia. Someone like (Mohammed) Shami has bowled incredibly well this season. A lot of guys have put their hands up throughout the competition and that has contributed to a lot of wins,” he said.

Miller was also effusive in his praise for opener Wriddhiman Saha.

David Miller concluded, “He (Saha) is almost like a pillar of strength. The contributions that he has made has been extremely good upfront. He has set the tone, scoring a lot of boundaries in the powerplay, really getting us to good starts. He has had an incredible season and hopefully he tops with one more extremely good game.”
