Nicknamed by many as "Baby AB de Villiers", the South African U-19 batter was acquired by MI for Rs 3 crore in the mega auction this year.
He was a star performer for South Africa in the recent U-19 Cricket World Cup. During the competition, he registered two centuries and three fifties. He hammered 506 runs and was also adjudged as Player of the Tournament.
Other than Brevis, MI also spent a lot on the likes of Ishan Kishan and Tim David.
Kishan was released by MI after IPL 2021 but rejoined in the mega auction for a whopping sum of Rs 15.25 crore. Meanwhile David was acquired for Rs 8.25 crore.
Daniel Sams was also purchased for Rs 2.60 crore and Tilak Varma also joined for Rs 1.70 crore.
