South Africa’s young batsman Dewald Brevis has been making all the headlines in the recent couple of months, starting from the U19 World Cup earlier this year that followed with a brilliant outing in the IPL 2022.
Brevis first shot to limelight during the 2022 U19 Cricket World Cup, not just because of his brilliant batting performance in the tournament, but he also has similarities to South Africa legend AB de Villiers’ batting.
He was picked by the Mumbai Indians for a price of just 3 crore after a intense battle between the Punjab Kings, Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians with the latter coming out as the winner eventually.
He had a brilliant IPL 2022 season in which the whole Mumbai Indians team struggled. Brevis 161 runs in 7 matches and took a wicket as well. Meanwhile, he recently stated that it was always his dream to play for the Mumbai Indians.
However, the Twitterati has exposed him after his statement. AB de Villiers is Brevis’ idol and before the IPL 2022 Auction, he had stated that AB’s team RCB is favourite team in the IPL and wants to play for them.
Dewald Brevis said "It's a dream to play for Mumbai Indians & now for MI Capetown – we have a great core".— Johns. (@CricCrazyJohns) November 28, 2022Advertisement
