It is the third IPL franchise for Shimron Hetmyer and his association with Rajasthan Royals couldn’t have begun on a more auspicious note. Three nights ago, he walked in to bat at the 15-over mark and went slam-bang to hit a 13-ball 32. Today, he came out to bat at a similar juncture in the 15th, and started teeing off from word go. Facing the brunt of Hetmyer’s pyrotechnics is his West Indies limited-overs skipper Kieron Pollard. Pollard only needed to make up three of the overs, but the fourth has proved mighty expensive.
