South African teenager Dewald Brevis made headlines with a quickfire innings in the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Wednesday.

Playing for the Mumbai Indians against the Punjab Kings in Pune, Brevis smashed 49 off 25 balls in a losing cause.

In one over, the SA under-19 star hit Punjab leg-spinner Rahul Chahar for a four and four consecutive sixes. His fourth six travelled a whopping 112 metres, the longest maximum in this year's IPL to date.

Brevis' efforts proved in vain though, as Mumbai fell 12 runs short in chasing down Punjab's 198.

It saw the five-time IPL champions crash to their fifth consecutive defeat in this year's edition.

But it was Brevis' innings that had cricket pundits talking, with many predicting a bright future for the 18-year-old.
