In the first game of the inaugural South African Twenty20 League, which Paarl Royals won, South African teen sensation Dewald Brevis performed at the peak of his game.
At the Newlands, Brevis blasted an unbeaten 70 off 41 balls as MI Cape Town won the match easily. This was done while the team was chasing a relatively low target of 143.
On the other hand, Brevis was clean bowled by West Indies all-rounder Kyle Mayers on a two-ball duck during MI Cape Town’s match against the Durban Super Giants on Friday. This meant that Brevis did not contribute to the scoring in any way.
It was the second ball of the match when Mayers’ blistering yorker uprooted Brevis’ off and middle stumps. Brevis was batting.
The delivery was a right-arm fast ball that was bowled from over the wickets. Before reaching to Brevis and removing his middle and off stump, the ball bounced around in the air before making contact.
MI was given the opportunity to bat first, however they were only able to post 152 for 8 after 20 overs.
Roelofsen hit 52 out of 44 balls, and George Linde and Delano Potgieter each had cameos of 33 and 25 points during the game.
Each of Reece Topley, Hardus Viljoen, and Prenelan Subrayen was responsible for taking two wickets for Durban.
Heinrich Klaasen’s performance of 36 runs off 22 balls and Kyle Mayers’ performance of 34 runs off 23 balls were vital in the Durban Super Giants’ successful pursuit of the mark in 16.3 overs. Keemo Paul scored 20 runs without going out after bowling 8 balls.
