Like a brother, Tilak Varma celebrated Dewald Brevis’ T20 International debut when he stepped onto the cricket pitch against Australia, transcending borders with excitement.
When Dewald Brevis stepped onto the cricket field for his debut T20 International with South Africa against Australia, the excitement knew no bounds. Hashim Amla, the South African legend, proudly handed him his first cap.
Meanwhile, thousands of miles away, in Sri Lanka, Indian cricketers Suryakumar Yadav and Tilak Varma, both teammates of Brevis on the Mumbai Indians IPL squad, were in preparation for the Asia Cup 2023 clash between India and Pakistan. Their attention, however, was not solely on their upcoming match. It was fixed on the screen, united by the thrill of seeing their friend’s dream come true.
In a heartwarming display of camaraderie that cricket often forges, Suryakumar captured the moment on Instagram. He shared a video as his story featuring Tilak Varma, pointing at the television screen with uncontainable excitement, exclaiming, “My boy is making his debut!”

While the 2023 IPL showcased Tilak as Mumbai Indians’ run-scoring champion, Dewald had a different season, remaining benched throughout. As comparisons to the legendary AB de Villiers surface, all eyes eagerly await Dewald’s performance in the international cricket arena.
