Former England spinner Graeme Swann felt that Mumbai Indians' young sensation Dewald Brevis reminds him of Kevin Pietersen's way.

Dewald Brevis, who is also known as Baby AB due to his batting style, made his debut for Mumbai Indians against Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL 2022. 

The youngster showed his class during his short stay at the crease. Before his dismissal, the right-handed batter scored 29 runs off 19 balls, laced with 2 fours and as many sixes.

Baby AB was dismissed by Varun Chakravarthy, who bowled well against the five-time champions.

Meanwhile, Dewald joined the list of overseas batters who have hit most sixes on their debut for the Mumbai-based franchise. 

He joined the likes of Lendl Simmons and Shaun Pollock, who hit two maximums for the franchise. 

Richard Levi of South Africa heads the list with three big hits in his first game for the team.
