Leading up to the Eliminator, MI New York faced a setback as Kieron Pollard sustained an injury, leaving a void in the middle order. Fortunately, Dewald Brevis, a young sensation in the team, stepped up to the occasion. Brevis had been in and out of the MINY side due to the limit on overseas players, but he seized the opportunity to prove his mettle.
In the playoffs, Brevis showcased his composure and talent with two crucial innings. His knock of 57 against Washington Freedom played a pivotal role in setting a competitive total after a slow start. In the match against TSK, he once again demonstrated his ability to handle pressure and paced the innings smartly, hitting boundaries when required.
The MI franchise was thrilled to witness the emergence of the young South African prodigy, Dewald Brevis, who displayed maturity and the potential to become a future cricket superstar. Despite Pollard’s absence, Brevis proved himself as a reliable asset to the team.
Overall, the match was not only a testament to MI New York’s resilience but also a celebration of the enduring friendship between Kieron Pollard and Dwayne Bravo, two remarkable players who know how to keep the game enjoyable with their sportsmanship and humor.
