Catching up LIVE with Shimron Hetmyer

“Dilliwaalon…  Kaise ho!”

Just like his swashbuckling batting style that lights up the 22 yards, Shimron Hetmyer lit up our social media timelines with his flawless Hindi and crazy dancing skills last December after he was bought for Rs 7.75 Crores at the VIVO IPL Auction. Talking via an Instagram LIVE session with us, the Guyanese southpaw expressed his excitement in joining our setup.

Hettie, as he’s fondly called, is currently spending quality time with his family at his home in Guyana during lockdown. He mentioned how happy he is on being home after a busy 4-year schedule. Apart from the regular trainings which included running, knocking practice and abdominal exercises, Hetmyer talked about shows like Fast and Furious, Two and a Half Men and cartoons that he’s bingeing on at the moment. “I am avoiding cooking since I might end up burning the house,” Hetmyer said with a wide grin on his face.

“My brother is the reason I started playing cricket. He has played for one of the counties in Guyana. He inspired me to start playing cricket at the age of 11,” said Hetmyer who made his international debut at the age of 20 against Pakistan in Jamaica. With his sisters also into cricket, Hetmyer had garnered a lot of support from his cricket-loving family.

 

“IPL 2019 was my debut into franchise cricket in India, and honestly I was not happy with the scores I got, it was a learning curve for me,” he said. Hetmyer, who made his IPL debut for Royal Challengers Bangalore in 2019, scored 90 runs in his first campaign. “I am quite excited to work under our head coach Ricky Ponting,” exclaimed Hetmyer who admitted being an ardent fan of Punter’s pull shot. The former World Cup winning Under-19 captain who was nervous during the auctions held during the West Indies tour of India, was delighted to join his best friend, Keemo Paul in Delhi Capitals. “Keemo is like the little brother I never had,” Hetmyer expressed.

 

Ending the LIVE session with a rapid fire, Hetmyer praised the local talent in India. “I have faced quality bowlers in nets during my India tour, and I am excited to play with local Indian talent during the IPL,” Hetmyer concluded.
