Shimron Hetmyer: expert in hitting sixes
When the cricket ball is in front, Shimron Hetmyer enjoys great fun by firing it with his bat, out of the stadium. This is the reason why the International Cricket Council had included Hetmyer among the 8 players whose list was seen in the tournament before IPL 2019. Hetmyer’s entry in the IPL was done through the team of Delhi-based Virat Kohli. But, in the 2020 auction, Hetmyer remained only through Delhi.
Shimron Hetmyer was bought by Delhi Capitals for Rs 7.75 crore in the IPL 2020 auction. For this team, Hetmyer played 12 matches in IPL 2020 and scored 185 runs at a strike rate of 148. During this time, he hit 11 fours and one more than that, i.e. 12 sixes. Earlier in IPL 2019, when he played 5 matches for RCB, he scored 90 runs and in that season also scored only 4 fours but six sixes. RCB had added Shimron Hetmyer to themselves in December 2018 for the IPL 2019 season.
Hetmyer names six more, four less in IPL
The Guyana cricketer Hetmyer, who has represented the West Indies in Under-19 cricket twice, has played 17 matches in 2 seasons of the IPL. He has scored 275 runs in these 17 matches. Hetmyer has scored 15 fours in the IPL and has hit 4 more than sixes. That is, there were 19 sixes in total. In the 2 seasons of IPL played so far, Hetmyer had caught 10 catches.
Did not play as expected in IPL 2020
While batting for the Delhi Capitals in the IPL 2020, Hetmyer could not perform according to his mood. He would like to erase the tight end of that season in IPL 2021. The 24-year-old batsman will also try to get Delhi the first title win with his explosive batting, for which he is known. Left-handed batsman Hetmyer is the life of batting for the Delhi Capitals in the middle order. Their presence makes Delhi strong in this order. Now it remains to be seen how much this strength gives to the Delhi Capitals in the 14th season of the IPL.
