I want to learn the no-look six from you: Suryakumar Yadav tells Dewald Brevis

IPL franchise Mumbai Indians released a video on their YouTube channel on Saturday showing South Africa teammates Suryakumar Yadav and Dewald Brevis having a candid conversation.

Yadav is one of the most innovative hitters playing the game today, with his wide range of unorthodox shots dissected around the world. Here, however, he was seen asking 19-year-old Brevis to teach him the no-look sixes.

“Sometimes I just try to copy you. The way you hit. You have to teach me one thing. How do you do that no-look shot, no-look six? I just want to learn that from you,” Surya told Brevis, who scored 162 runs off just 57 balls in October’s CSA T20 Challenge.

“I would like to. It would be an honor, but I would also like to learn a lot of pictures from you. I want to tell you a funny story about this. My no-look just happens. It’s weird. I don’t know. It just happens. I’ve always felt it helps if I keep my head down. And then it just happens,” replied Brevis.

Surya even asked the Proteas prodigy what he had in the morning the day he hit that 162 to which Brevis replied “I had my normal omelette in the morning”

He then added, “I was just having another normal day. It just happened. I didn’t even realize what I was doing at the time. I think everything happened at that moment. I played each ball in its own time. Ball by ball I tried that. And at the end I said to a guy, ‘I’m going to try and hit every ball six times now,’ and he said ‘Looks like you’ve been doing that all innings. It just happened. It was a snapshot. It was a special innings I must say.”
