Why he is “Baby AB”?

Due to his resemblance to South African and Indian Premier League legend AB de Villiers, his rise to fame grew even faster with the nickname “Baby AB” gaining the name too fast.  In a very short space of time captured the attention of cricket followers globally with his record-breaking feats.

“It is a dream come true. It has always been my dream to represent Mumbai Indians, and now MI Cape Town, and to be able to play on the big stage because the crowds are massive, and I really enjoy it,” Brevis said. 

Despite cricket’s entire stratosphere being virtually his oyster, Brevis remains humble and values the prospect of being able to tap into the intellectual capacity of senior internationals such as Rassie van der Dussen, Liam Livingstone, Kagiso Rabada, Jofra Archer, and Rashid Khan.
