Besides the video, Miller also shared an Instagram story with a picture of himself and the girl, writing in it, “Going to miss you so much my skut! Thee bigggest heart I’ve ever known. You took fighting to a different level-always incredibly positive and a smile on your face. A cheeky and mischievous side to you. You embraced every person and every challenge in your journey. You taught me so much about cherishing every single moment in life! I feel humbled to have walked a journey with you. I love you so much!”

In 2017, Miller had shared a photo with the girl. 

After Miller shared the video on Saturday, some reports suggested that the girl was the cricketer’s daughter. However, fans managed to trace the photo.

The news comes the day before India and South Africa are set to square off in the second ODI match of the ongoing three-match series.

A left-handed hard-hitting batter for the Proteas, Miller first came into the limelight when he scored 130 in January 2015 in a match against the West Indies. In the ICC Cricket World Cup the same year, he scored a blistering 18-ball 49 against New Zealand in the semi-final. However, the Kiwis ended up winning the match via the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern (DLS) method.

In the previous ODI encounter between India and South Africa in Lucknow, Miller proved to be the one of pillars of the Proteas’ innings, scoring an unbeaten 75 runs in 63 balls.
