Mahela Jayawardene surprises Mumbai Indians supporters that Dewald Brevis may be one of the team’s batters in the playing XI for the year 2022..
Mahela Jayawardene in the press conference stated “We haven’t finalized the playing XI. And we are excited to see Dewald Brevis in the Nets and he is a commited young man and keen to learn and that’s good to see.”
The 18-year-old has been nicknamed ‘Baby AB’ owing to his hitting style’s similarities to that of former South African batsman AB de Villiers. The kid batsman played strokes along the field to get himself calm at first in a one-minute video published by Mumbai Indians on their YouTube. However, as Brevis got his sights in, the teenager unleashed plenty of huge smashes and reverse sweeps. The 18-year-old exhibited his shot range and demonstrated that he, like his hero de Villiers, is a 360-degree player.
