Shimron Hetmyer endeared himself to the Indian crowd with his six-hitting ability during the Windies’ limited overs tour of India in 2018. The left-handed batter, who had played for Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL 2019, made his way to Delhi Capitals after being bought for Rs. 7.75 crore in the IPL 2020. Hetmyer, the Guyana-born batter, represented the Windies in the Under-19 tournament twice: in 2014 and 2016. He captained his side to victory against a spirited Indian side in the 2016 edition of the competition. While Hetmyer did not enjoy much success with the bat in IPL 2020, he scored 242 runs in 14 games from 144 balls. Bought for a whopping Rs. 8.5 crore ahead of the 15th season, Hetmyer scored 314 runs at an average of 44.86 and SR of 153.92 in a season where RR reached the final. Hetmyer will once again be the vital cog this season and expectations from him will remain high.
