Kolkata, Oct 7: Run-outs have been a cause of concern for India in the ongoing T20I cricket series and South African batsman David Miller today said they're looking forward to more such dismissals with a smaller boundary at Eden Gardens.

"Here in Kolkata being a smaller boundary, there's going to be a lot less twos and more ones. It's a ground where there can be run outs. A little fumble here and there when batters going for a two may just give a chance. Hopefully we can see some more run-outs tomorrow," Miller, who ran Rohit Sharma out with a direct throw, said on the eve of their final T20I against India.

South Africa broke India's back with two run-outs of Virat Kohli and Rohit in their 92-run collapse in Cuttack. Kohli was dismissed without facing a ball, while Rohit followed next as India failed to recover to record their second lowest T20I score.

South Africa raced to a six-wicket victory to seal the series with a game in hand. On his direct hit dismissal of Rohit, Miller said: "I've not been hitting the stumps for a while, I keep coming only close. I picked up the ball and just tried to throw the stumps down.

"It's nice to get a run out and at that time, it was a big wicket. The little moments like that is what we need as a team in the T20s, ODIs and Tests."

"To be honest, in the build up to the series, we've been working really hard on our fielding. We proud ourselves in the field. It's just looking at the venue and a day before the game we find out from where its easy to throw etc. A lot of times in India, you can throw it to the keeper in one bounce because the grounds are hard. We just got to asses that situation."
