Hetmyer moves up
LONDON – Amid the doom and gloom of an embarrassing 2-0 away series loss to Bangladesh, there is still some positive news for the woeful West Indies Test cricket team.
Young Guyanese left-hander Shimron Hetmyer has vaulted 28 places in the latest International Cricket Council (ICC) Test batting rankings, following his fireworks in the just concluded two-Test rubber.
The 21-year-old, the only West Indies batsman to emerge from the humiliating whitewash with his reputation intact, is now 52nd in the Test batting charts topped by India captain Virat Kohli despite playing just ten Tests.
Hetmyer struck 39 and 93 in the second Test debacle in Dhaka, as West Indies slid to a heavy innings and 184-run defeat inside three days on Sunday – their largest margin of defeat to the hosts ever. (CMC/EZS)
