Video : Baby AB Dewald Brevis hits a massive 112 M six against Rahul Chahar

Mumbai Indians shocked everyone a few months ago when they bought South African youngster Dewald Brevis at a price of 3 Crores. He is just 18 years old and he recently appeared in South Africa’s team for the 2022 U-19 Cricket World Cup which was played at the West Indies thus everyone was surprised when MI bought such a young talent for such a high price.

However little did people know that Dewald Brevis is actually a child prodigy and many consider him to be the next-gen AB de Villiers. In fact, he has gotten his nickname ‘Baby AB’ for the exact same reason. And he proved his mettle in today’s match between Mumbai Indians and Punjab Kings.

Dewald Brevis was simply unstoppable in today’s match and particularly his rock solid display against Punjab’s ace bowler Rahul Chahar will be remembered for days to come.

Not many will believe this if they did not see the match but Dewald Brevis hit 4 consecutive sixes against Rahul Chahar in the last night’s match and shocked everyone with his terrific performance. Not only that, he hit a humongous 112 metres six which is the longest and the biggest six of IPL 2022 so far.

Earlier the record was held by Liam Livingstone who had the longest six of IPL 2022 – 108 metres. Nobody had thought that an 18-year old will be breaking his record but he did it quite comfortably today and that too by a big margin. 112 m six is not only one of the biggest sixes this season but one of the biggest sixes in IPL history and Dewald Brevis has thus marked his entry into the Indian Premier League in style. The youngster has a very bright future and Mumbai Indians must utilise him to the fullest.
