Dewald Brevis is a South African professional cricketer who came to prominence in February 2022 when he had been named the ‘Player of the Series’ at the 2022 ICC (International Cricket Council) Under-19 Cricket World Cup. Despite his heroics, South Africa had finished 7th in the 16-team tournament. Only Tatenda Taibu of Zimbabwe (who had finished 9th in 2002) had won the ‘Player of the Series’ award with his team finishing lower than South Africa’s 7th in 2022. Dewald was the leading run-scorer of the tournament, with 506 runs (including 2 centuries and 3 half-centuries) to his name in just 6 games, at an astounding average of 84.33. For good measure, he had also taken 7 wickets in those 6 games. For his performances, he was named in the ‘Team of the Tournament’ by both the ICC and ESPNCricinfo. In South African domestic cricket, he had been signed up by Northerns in April 2021, before the start of the 2021–22 domestic season.

Dewald Brevis Facts

  1. Dewald, at a very early stage in his career, had drawn comparisons with AB de Villiers, one of the greatest batsmen ever produced by South Africa and perhaps the most innovative batsman to ever play the sport. Dewald’s aggressive strokeplay and ability to clear the boundaries, just like AB, has earned him the nicknames ‘AB 2.0’ and ‘Baby AB’.
  2. Dewald has also had the opportunity to meet his idol and gain valuable insights and tips from him. He considers de Villiers his mentor and sports the number ’17’ on his jersey as a tribute to his hero who used to don the same number in his international career.
  3. Although primarily a top-order batter, Dewald had started bowling substantial spells just before the start of the 2022 ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup, in a series of bilateral Youth ODIs against the West Indies in the West Indies. The effort produced better results than expected, as he scalped 10 wickets in just 3 games in that series.
  4. His tally of 506 runs (in 6 games) at the 2022 ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup had set a new record for the most number of runs in a single edition of the tournament, eclipsing by just a run, the mark of 505 runs that had been set by India’s Shikhar Dhawan in 2004. He had also hit 18 sixes in the tournament, setting another new record, bettering Englishman Jack Burnham’s 2016 record of 15 sixes.
  5. Dewald’s scores in the tournament read 65, 104, 96, 97, 6, and 138 which meant that he had crossed the 50-run mark in 5 of the 6 matches that he had played. He had, thus, tied the tournament record for most 50+ scores in a single edition of the tournament with Yashasvi Jaiswal of India (6 games in 2020), Sarfaraz Khan of India (6 games in 2016), and Brett Williams of Australia (9 games in 1988).
  6. His knock of 138 runs against Bangladesh in the 7th place playoff match, South Africa’s final game of the tournament, had helped the team successfully chase a massive target of 294 runs. This was the 2nd highest total to have been chased down in the history of the tournament, just behind New Zealand’s overhauling of a target of 305 runs against Ireland in the 2006 edition of the tournament.
  7. At the 2022 IPL (Indian Premier League) mega auction held in February 2022, he had been acquired by 5-time IPL champions Mumbai Indians for INR 3 crores (USD 400k).
  8. On his first-ever IPL delivery in April 2022, he took the wicket of Virat Kohli of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) as LBW.
