The young Mumbai Indians (MI) batter, Dewald Brevis, fondly called ‘Baby AB’ for his shot-making as he plays similar kinds of shots like AB de Villiers used to play, looked in sublime touch against PBKS until Odean Smith got him in the 11th over. Smith, following his wicket, went straight to Brevis and gave him an angry send-off, which wasn’t received well by the netizens.

Dewald Brevis was the leading run-getter in the Under-19 World Cup in the Caribbean earlier this year and fans got to know that his teammates fondly called him ” Baby AB de Villiers”. After watching his impressive outing at the ICC event, Mumbai Indians, the five-time IPL champions, signed him at INR 3 crore at the 2022 mega-auction.

Even at 18, Dewald Brevis has already started to get enough opportunities for the MI. He has owned a place at No. 3 there, ahead of the gun batter Suryakumar Yadav. Brevis came to bat at his familiar position as well against Punjab Kings (PBKS) in Match 23 of IPL 2022, and took all the limelight by smashing four consecutive sixes against Rahul Chahar.

Brevis was batting on 49 off 24 balls and was about to become the youngest to hit an IPL half-century. But it did not happen, as he continued to play an aggressive nature, instead of thinking about the milestone. On the last ball of the 11th over, he wanted to pull Odean Smith over deep backward square leg.
