Miller was handed the gloves as South Africa seek a back-up option to Quinton de Kock at the World Cup in England and Wales, with the former passing his audition with some neat work behind the stumps.

Sri Lanka probable playing XI: Avishka Fernando, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Niroshan Dickwella, Kusal Mendis (WK), Priyamal Perera, Thisara Perera, Dhananjaya de Silva, Angelo Perera, Akila Dananjaya, Lasith Malinga (C), and Isuru Udana.

The two highest run scorer for South Africa in the match Miller and van der Dussen came out to tackle the only over and captain Malinga himself chose to bowl the over.

Van der Dussen was caught at fine leg off Malinga and two balls later man-of-the-match Miller was run out. Mendis hit three fours and two sixes in a 29-ball innings.

The rest of the squad for the first game is the same as for the last two ODIs against Sri Lanka.

He came in with South Africa needing two to win and one to tie. Miller and van der Dussen scored 41 runs and 34 runs respectively.

"You don't want the team to be in those positions, you always to want to beat a team by 10 wickets or whatever but being in that position, I think, was very good".

South Africa head into this T20 series full of confidence after they completed a whitewash over Sri Lanka in the ODI series and will be looking to carry that form into the game's shortest format.

South Africa threw away their winning position and only just managed to tie and Tahir was the savior for the home team then, too. But they only needed just 5 runs in the last over to win the match.

The Proteas had looked to be cruising to victory - at one stage they required 18 runs for victory with four overs (24 balls) remaining and with seven wickets in hand. South Africa batted first this time according to the rules.

It left Sri Lanka needing 15 to win but South Africa's ace up their sleeve, Tahir, proved once again what a genuine match-winner he is, conceding only five runs from his over, which included two wides. The next T20 will take place on 22 March at Centurion.
