About

Shimron Hetmyer endeared himself to the Indian crowd with his entertaining six hitting in the recently concluded limited over series against the Windies, finishing with an impressive 259 runs in 5 ODIs. The 1996 born youngtser has represented the Windies in the Under 19 tournament twice already in 2014 and 2016, captaining his side to victory against a spirited Indian side in the 2016 edition that took place in Bangladesh. Hailing from Guyana in the Caribbean Islands, he has already represented his national side in all formats of the game. Primarily a Left Handed middle order batsman in 50 overs and Test match cricket, he has shown the willingness to bat at the top of the order in T20s.

Adept at donning the wicket-keeping gloves, he gives Virat Kohli an additional combination option when they sit down to choose our best playing XI. The ability to clear the ropes with ease coupled with him hailing from the Caribbean has given him an uncanny resemblance to RCB legend Chris Gayle which had instantly endeared him to the Chinnaswamy faithful. Much would be expected from Shimron when he trades the red of the Windies with the RCB red as he was picked up amid much fanfare for INR 4.2 Crores.
