Former South Africa batter AB de Villiers has picked young sensation Dewald Brevis as the most exciting player to watch out for in the inaugural edition of the SA20 league, which is scheduled to begin on January 10 at Cape Town.
Notably, the 19-year-old was adjudged as the Player of the Tournament at the U19 World Cup 2022. Looking at his impressive performance, the Mumbai Indians franchise bought him ahead of the 15th edition of the IPL, where he played seven matches, scoring 161 runs at a strike rate of 142.48.
Following a decent season with the bat, the franchise decided to retain the cricketer for IPL 2023 and also signed him for the upcoming SA20 league. He is expected to feature in the playing XI on a regular basis and thus, de Villiers is eager to see how he performs in the new tournament.
“I think there’s a lot of young players that have come through in the last few years and I think of the very first up in my list Dewald Brevis. I’m looking forward to watch him play and few other youngsters that have performed really well,” de Villiers was quoted by India Today.
