Profile for Shimron Hetmyer. Profile Updated On 15 Friday November 2019 225436000000
Born in Berbice, Guyana, Hetmyer is a World Cup winning captain of the West Indies U-19 team of 2016. Inspired by his father Seon Hetmyer, Shimron picked up the bat at a tender age of 11. Since, then he has never looked back. His initial apprenticeship started off at the Young Warriors Cricket Club, Berbice.
He represented West Indies at the Under-19 World Cup in 2014 as well but managed three single digit scores out of the five games that he played in that tourney. Even his first class debut was far from being memorable as he managed scores of 0 and 4 in both innings against Trinidad And Tobago.
However, destiny gave him a second chance and this time he was meant to marshal the troops in the under-19 World Cup and he responded with crucial fifties in the quarter-finals and semi-finals of the 2016 edition en-route to the silverware.
An attacking and destructive opener, he was picked up Guyana Amazon Warriors for the 2016 edition of the CPL. But he got out for a duck in the only game that he played. His promise and perseverance paid off and he was called up for national duties in April 2017 to feature in the three-match Test series against Pakistan. Slotted to bat at number 3, Shimron failed to convert his starts. He was later picked up for the tour to New Zealand in December 2017 but again starts never materialized into anything substantial.
On the same tour, he was exposed to white ball cricket as well. In ODIs and T20Is, Hetmyer did not have a great time tallying only a handful of runs. He did however show a lot of promise as he scored a ton against UAE in the World Cup qualifiers to start his campaign. But then the conversion problem again got the better of him in the rest of the games.
