Shimron Hetmyer took an excellent catch to dismiss Suryakumar Yadav in the first ODI between India and West Indies at the Brian Lara Stadium in Trinidad on Thursday, August 3.
The incident took place in the 10th over during India’s run chase when Jason Holder bowled a fuller-length delivery outside off-stump. Yadav drove it hard but failed to keep it on the ground. Hetmyer dived full length to his left at extra cover and completed a low catch with both hands. With the wicket, WI reduced the Men in Blue to 67/3 after 9.2 overs.
Since then, India lost wickets at regular intervals to finish four runs short and go 0-1 down in the five-match series.
Suryakumar Yadav departed for run-a-ball 21, including one six and two fours. The vice-captain has failed to live up to expectations on the WI tour so far. The right-handed batter recently amassed just 78 runs in three ODIs with best score of 35.
Shimron Hetmyer might not have set the stage on fire with the bat but he made sure that he contribute to the team’s cause on the field.
Shimron Hetmyer had a great opportunity to mark his return to the West Indies in a grand style but he failed to get going. The southpaw smashed one four but was dismissed for just 10 runs off 12 balls as he was caught by Axar Patel off Arshdeep Singh.
