"We are delighted to sign David Miller for a six-game stint in this year's T20 Blast campaign," said Glamorgan's chief executive, Hugh Morris.

"David is a fine batsman, with a wealth of experience in T20 cricket. He is a match-winner and a finisher, proven to be one of the most destructive batsman in the game at both domestic and international level."

Miller, who already has plenty of experience in the Blasts having represented Yorkshire and Durham, will link up with compatriot Colin Ingram at Glamorgan.

The Natal-born batsman has a wealth of international experience in one-day and Twenty20 cricket and was one of the Proteas' star performers at the 2015 World Cup, notching 324 runs as South Africa made the semi-finals.
