<p>The esteemed Brevis exhibited an exceptional temperament as he stormed his way to an undefeated 66 off 32, propelling MI Cape Town to an imposing 248/4. This target proved insurmountable for their adversaries, notwithstanding a dazzling unbeaten century from Kyle Verreynne.</p>
<p>Brevis stepped onto the crease after the departure of Liam Livingstone (12 off 19) and initiated the onslaught with the second delivery he faced from pacer Daryn Dupavillon—an elevated full toss powerfully dispatched over the deep square leg boundary for a six.</p>
<p>Throughout his innings, Brevis dispatched six sixes, including a no-look six off Dupavillon’s bowling.</p>
<p>In the 19th over, Dupavillon’s misjudged full delivery allowed Brevis to loft it over long-on without deigning to witness where the ball landed, also propelling him to a 27-ball half-century.</p>
<p>The 20-year-old Brevis expressed considerable relief at the conclusion of his innings, breaking free from his slump.</p>
<p>“This has been an intriguing period; firstly, I must express gratitude to the divine. At the end of the tunnel, there is illumination. I am thankful to contribute to the team and achieve a commendable score,” Brevis conveyed to the broadcasters on Thursday.</p>
<p>“Truly relished being out there in front of my home crowd. I harbor immense affection for this place. I believe in us wholeheartedly, and we will exert ourselves to the fullest,” he added.</p>
<p>In pursuit of 249, Pretoria Capitals found themselves in dire straits, plummeting to 42/6 in a mere 5.4 overs.</p>
<p>With the outcome of the match virtually assured, Verreynne collaborated with his captain Wayne Parnell to mount a comeback, propelling them to 120/6 before the partnership was severed.</p>
<p>Faced with a dwindling number of partners, Verreynne assumed responsibility to lead the chase, peppering the boundary in the final four overs to culminate in a remarkable century.</p>
<p>While his innings did not secure victory for Pretoria Capitals, it thwarted MI Cape Town’s chance of a bonus point win.</p>
