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 batsman, who had played for Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL 2019, made his way to Delhi Capitals after being bought for INR 7.75 crores for the IPL 2020. Born in Berbice, Guyana, in 1996, Hetmyer 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 the IPL 2020, he scored 242 runs in 14 games from 144 balls. Bought for a whopping 8.5 crore ahead of the 15th season, Hetmyer will now turn out for RR and will be once required to help stabilize the middle order and go big towards the end. Expectations from him will remain high this season.
