Shimron Hetmyer, the Windies batsman, is presently busy plying his trade in the ODI series versus India. But he has hasn’t had the best times of late. He recently played the T20I series against the Men in Blue and could only manage seven runs in three matches. In fact, after making his debut in the format back in January 2018 versus New Zealand, the left-hander has strained to find his feet.

In 14 T20Is, Hetmyer has only notched 116 runs with an abysmal average of 10.54. His strike-rate of 116 is always way lower than his overall T20 strike-rate of 136.57. Hetmyer had a reasonable outing in the 2019 World Cup as he racked up 257 runs at 36.71. The Guyana-born also got a couple of half-centuries against Bangladesh and the Black Caps at Taunton and Manchester respectively.

During the mega event, he was also guilty of throwing his wicket away plenty of times, something which ended up costing teams in a significant manner. In 35 ODIs, Hetmyer has scored 1,156 runs with four tons and as many half-centuries. In Test cricket, he has 754 runs at an average of 30.16. He will be keen to make amends in the Windies’ upcoming ODI at Port of Spain Trinidad.

Shimron Hetmyer chilling out

Amidst his cricketing assignments, Hetmyer is finding himself time to stay relaxed. Recently, he posted a photo along with his girlfriend and Indian spinner Yuzvendra Chahal. Co-incidentally, Chahal and Hetmyer play for the same franchise, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Indian Premier League. Quite understandably, the duo has developed a strong bond, playing for the same team.

The southpaw captioned the picture and wrote. “Wonderful night and a night to remember with great friends and the best girlfriend in the world,”

Here is Hetmyer’s post

As far as Chahal is concerned, he had a reasonable campaign in the World Cup, picking up 12 wickets. The tweaker has been one of the major reasons why India has dominated in the ODI and T20I formats over the years. He is a part of the ongoing ODI series in the Caribbean Islands but didn’t get to play the first game where Kuldeep Yadav was preferred ahead of him.
