Power hitter Brewis is yet to make his international debut
Baby AB plays for Mumbai Indians in IPL
New Delhi. South Africa has planned to achieve success in the 2027 ODI World Cup and Test format. Under this, young cricketers will be included in the team. The most special name in this is that of explosive opener batter Dewald Brevis. Brewis, popularly known as Baby AB, has made his mark in the cricket world in a very short time. Power hitter Dewald is currently playing for MI Cape Town in the South Africa T20 League. He is a part of Mumbai Indians in IPL.
South African team’s new red ball and white ball coach Shukri Konrad and Rob Walter want to make international debut of Brewis as soon as possible. Cricket South Africa (CSA) director Enoch Naquay said, there is a lot of noise about Brewis and we know what a good cricketer he is. To nurture youngsters like Brewis, we may have to follow the David Vonnner approach. This means giving opportunity to talented youth in professional cricket directly from Under-19. Talking to the media, Naqwe said, Brewis has experience of playing in many T20 leagues. There is no need to try them in domestic cricket.
International debut before first class
Australia’s opener batsman David Warner made his international debut in the year 2009 even before his first class debut. By performing better in ODI format, he also made a place in the Test team in 2 years. CSA has made the same strategy for Brewis.
Suryakumar is also convinced of Brevis
Team India’s 360 batsman Suryakumar Yadav is also a fan of Baby AB. He is very impressed with his power hitting. Recently, he expressed his desire to learn the ‘no look’ shot from Brewis. Mumbai Indians had shared a video on social media, in which Surya was seen talking to Brewis. In this Sky says, I am trying to copy you (Brevis) sometimes. The way you bat. How do you hit the no look shot, the no look six? You have to teach me this.
