Brevis said that when Sachin Tendulkar met him, he was lying on the floor in the gym and Tendulkar suddenly entered the gym.

"I was laying on the floor of the gym and suddenly Sachin sir appeared at the door. I didn’t know what to do and the first time I shook his hand, it was insane," said Brevis.

MI had included Dewald in their team for Rs 3 crore in this season's mega auction. His base price was Rs 20 lakh. Bravis is also known as 'Baby Abbey'. He had a stellar performance in the ICC Under-19 World Cup 2022 and scored 506 runs in the entire tournament.

Not only this, he also took the wicket of veteran batsman Virat Kohli in the league match against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).

Meanwhile, Mumbai Indians had a torrid season. They could only manage to win just 4 out of 14 matches. Not only this, they created the record of losing 8 straight matches in the league, finally winning on the 9th occasion.
