“Baby Abby” Dewald Brevis runs off the bat

In the recently played Under-19 World Cup 2022, South Africa’s young batsman Dewald Brevis created a lot of buzz with his brilliant batting. He scored a total of 506 runs in 6 matches of this entire tournament at an average of over 84. In view of his excellent performance, during the IPL auction, he was included in his team by Mumbai Indians by paying a huge price of 3 crores. But now the bat of Dewald Brevis seems to be silent as soon as one level comes up from Under-19 cricket.

drop in performance

Dewald Brevis, the young South African batsman, who became famous as Baby AB during the Under-19 World Cup, resembles that of former South African great batsman AB de Villiers. His style has earned him worldwide recognition. Brevis is currently playing for the Titans in South Africa’s domestic T20 tournament CSA T20 Challenge.

But, in this tournament so far he has not been able to perform as expected. Brevis could not even open the account in the match against North-West on Tuesday. He was bowled to zero by Dwayne Pretorius. So far he has played 5 matches in this tournament. And even 1 has not been able to score even a half-century.

Mumbai Indians have expressed confidence

Dewald Brevis

Apart from batting, Dewald Brevis also bowls. Seeing this ability, Mumbai Indians, the most successful franchise in IPL history, expressed their trust in him and added him during the auction by paying a huge price of 3 crores.

Brevis got the highest price among the Under-19 players in the IPL Mega Auction. However, the way Brevis Dewald is performing in the CSA T20 challenge will definitely be a matter of concern for the franchise. In such a situation, it will be very interesting to see how his performance is on the big stage of IPL.
