The 2018 Hero CPL has been a breakout season for Shimron Hetmyer, which he has used as a platform to enhance his international career. And get picked up in other T20 tournaments like the Indian Premier League (IPL). He is having finished last year as the Guyana Amazon Warriors’ high scorer with 440 runs, such as a maiden T20 hundred. Hetmyer says that he will be trying hard to improve those stellar returns once the 2019 CPL gets expired on 4 September.
“Well, I will be seeking to outdo it let’s see how it goes. Now I am feeling great in my batting at which is anxious and my overall game too, so I am seeking to take it one step at a time and attempt as far as you can and as tough as possible to test and choose Guyana one step farther this season.”
The CPL has played a significant role in the evolution of several young players in the Caribbean, and Hetmyer says he’s discovered a large sum from the tournament.
“It is taught me a whole lot. It has brought me up into the world stage understanding different players from all over the globe and playing against a few of those men I have never played against before. CPL helps since you essentially play with a few of the men that are more established and at and about the global stage. It always helps in various ways. It provides the younger men a bit of an opportunity to rub shoulders with a few of the experienced men on the group and a few of the experienced men have played in planet cricket and out of different nations too.”
“Therefore it helps you as a young participant to come up with your sport and to understand your strengths and weaknesses, and operate on these as soon as you can so once you do reach this stage, it will get just a bit simpler for you and you also make a less volume of mistakes.”
Hetmyer was one of 3 Guyanese players the Amazon Warriors retained before the draft took place. And he is quite happy with the rest of the squad which chose for the upcoming tournament.
