For slamming the fastest Twenty20 International century in the second game against Bangladesh, South Africa's David Miller has been named the Cricket World Player of the Week.

The innings was set by a brilliant 85-run knock from Hashim Amla at the top following which Miller took the Bangladesh attack to the cleaners as he smashed a 35-ball ton that had seven boundaries and nine sixes in it. He even went on to smash nine sixes and seven boundaries in the innings as the Proteas posted 224 runs in the innings.

The first T20I between these two teams also saw Quinton de Kock register his second half century while AB de Villiers scored a breezy 49 to help South Africa complete a 20 run victory.

The second and third One-Day International between India and New Zealand saw the home side make a terrific comeback to claim the series 2-1. Bhuvneshwar Kumar was excellent in the second game in Pune with a three wicket haul wile Jasprit Bumrah showcased his talent in the final game that also saw Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli notch 147 and 113 respectively.

There were some special performances in the three match Twenty20 International series between Sri Lanka and Pakistan which saw the final game hosted in Lahore.

Hasan Ali picked six wickets spread across all the three games while Shoaib Malik played a couple of blistering knocks of 42 and 51 in the first and third games. Mohammad Amir's four wicket haul in the final game in Lahore was one of the finest spell of bowling as Pakistan completed a 3-0 series whitewash.

Rachael Haynes' 89 and half-centuries from Nicole Bolton and Ellyse Perry helped Australia claim a win in the second game of the Women's Ashes which also saw Jenny Gunn and Megan Schutt pick four wickets each. Heather Knight, Sarah Taylor and Tammy Beaumont also scored half-centuries in the third game to help England Women register their first win of the tour.
