South Africa batting sensation Dewald Brevis earned his maiden call-up to the national side as it announced the squads for its upcoming home ODI and T20I series against Australia on Monday.
The Proteas will host Australia for three T20Is beginning August 30, followed by a five-match ODI series that will culminate on September 17.
Brevis came into the spotlight during the 2022 Under-19 World Cup where he topped the batting charts with 506 runs and was adjudged the ‘Player of the Tournament.’ The dashing batter has since been part of T20 leagues around the globe, notably with Mumbai Indians in the IPL besides MI Cape Town and MI New York.
Donovan Fereira and pacer Gerald Coetzee have also been called up to the T20I squad while senior players Quinton de Kock, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje and Heinrich Klaasen have been rested with the ODI World Cup preparations in mind.
