Watch: West Indies Star Uproots Dewald Brevis' Stumps With Crushing Yorker In SA20 League
SA20: Kyle Mayers bowled the delivery from over the stumps. The ball swung before getting into Dewald Brevis and removing his middle and off stump.
South African prodigy Dewald Brevis was on top of powers in the opening match of the inaugural SA20 League against Paarl Royals. While chasing a modest target of 143, Brevis slammed an unbeaten 70 off 41 balls as MI Cape Town won the match convincingly at the Newlands. However, in MI Cape Town's game against the Durban Super Giants on Friday, Brevis failed to trouble scorers as he was clean bowled on a two-ball duck by West Indies all-rounder Kyle Mayers.
It happened on the second ball of the match as Mayers' searing yorker uprooted Brevis' off and middle stumps. The right-arm pacer bowled the delivery from over the stumps. The ball swung in the air before getting into Brevis and removing his middle and off stump.
