Speaking on Rohit’s captaincy, Brevis said that he was a great leader both on and off the field. Rohit is known to give his players complete freedom and backing which brings out the best in them. Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Rahul Chahar, Ishan Kishan and now Dewald Brevis, all are products of his faith in them.

Brevis also heaped praise on the Mumbai Indians dressing room. He spoke about how there was always “lots of fun, laughter and bonding between everyone” in the MI family during IPL 2022. He believes that this helped him be himself among others and brought out the best in him.

“It is such a great honour for me to be part of MI. MI made me feel part of the family. I felt so welcome and comfortable in this team.”

Dewald Brevis will don the Mumbai Indians jersey once again in next year’s IPL and is expected to get more chances as the franchise looks to move on from a dismal tournament this year. Yet to play international cricket as of now, Brevis has already made a few heads turn with his uncanny resemblance to AB de Villiers.
