Dewald Brevis Facts
- Dewald, at an early stage in his career, drew comparisons with AB de Villiers, who was one of the greatest batsmen South Africa produced and perhaps the most innovative batsman to ever play the game. Like Abby, Dewald’s aggressive strokeplay and ability to push boundaries has earned him the nicknames ‘AB 2.0’ and ‘Baby Abby’.
- Dewald has also had the opportunity to meet his idol and gain valuable insights and suggestions from him. He considers de Villiers to be his mentor and sports the number ’17’ on his jersey as a tribute to his hero, who donned the same number in his international career.
- Although primarily a top-order batsman, Dewald started bowling enough spells just before the start of 2022 ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup, in a series of bilateral youth ODIs against the West Indies in the West Indies.

- His knock of 138 against Bangladesh in the 7th place playoff match, South Africa’s final match of the tournament, helped the team successfully chase down a massive target of 294 runs.
