Batsman David Miller has said he is honoured to be given another chance to shine for South Africa in the ongoing one-day series against New Zealand.

Miller has replaced suspended captain AB de Villiers, who will be missing the remaining two matches of the series against the Kiwis for a slow over-rate in the first ODI in Paarl, which the visitors won by one wicket, Sport24 reports.

Miller, who joined up with the squad in Kimberley on Sunday said it is a fantastic feeling, as it has been a while since he last played ODI cricket, adding that for him it's a great honour to be back in the green and gold of South Africa.

Miller added it's another opportunity for he and he really hopes to make good use of it.

Miller last played a one-day international for South Africa in 2011 against Australia, after making his debut in the West Indies at the age of 20.

He has had successful T20 county stints with Durham and Yorkshire, while contributing consistently for the Dolphins in limited overs cricket and says he has learnt a lot since making his debut.

The second ODI is played in Kimberley on Tuesday, with the series concluding in Potchefstroom on Friday. (ANI)
