A couple of days after scoring 106 off just 78 balls, Shimron Hetmyer took the Indian bowlers to the cleaners once again. The 20-year old looked in top form right from the time he came out to bat with his team in deep trouble while chasing an imposing 322.

Chasing the imposing total, the Windies were off to a shaky start. Kieran Powell, who had scored a fifty in the first game, was out for just 18. Chandrapaul Hemraj and Marlon Samuels also failed to score big as Windies found themselves three down for just 78. However, the game turned on its head once Hetmyer came out to bat.

He launched a stunning counterattack to help Windies claw their way back in the game.   He reached his fifty off just 43 balls and continued to torment the Indian bowlers. But unfortunately,  his stunning knock came to a disappointing end as he was dismissed for 94. The knock came off just 64 balls and contained 4 fours and 7 sixes. He added 141 runs with Shai Hope to put Windies’ chase well on track.

But despite Hetmyer missing his ton, Twitter lavished praise on him for his entertaining knock:


An avid cricket lover, I just love this game more than anything. Writing about cricket keeps me closer to the game.
