Rookie Hetmyer steadies WI ship

Social Share

CANTERBURY, England – Rookie left-hander Shimron Hetmyer shone but opener Kraigg Brathwaite suffered his third straight failure as the three-day tour game against Kent finished in a draw yesterday.

Before lightning and bad light ended play abruptly, West Indies were enjoying batting practice and had reached 132 for four at the Kent County Ground.

They were slumping at 50 for three before 20-year-old Hetmyer stroked an enterprising unbeaten 43 while Shai Hope got 30 and opener Kieran Powell, 23, to lead the Caribbean side’s revival.

Brathwaite, however, fell without scoring to follow up his first innings eight and two in the second innings of the opening tour game against Essex at Chelmsford. (CMC)
