In what was a stupendous gravity-defying act, Shimron Hetmyer caught an absolute screamer in the first T20I at the Sabina Park Stadium in Kingston, Jamaica. West Indies won the toss and opted to field first. Martin Guptill and Devon Conway opened the New Zealand innings with a bellicose approach, and the right-hander was trying to go after everything as he mistimed a shot off Odean Smith’s bowling which ended up being caught by Shimron Hetmyer on the point fence. He ran to his left from sweeper cover, tracking the ball’s projection like a hawk, and timed his jump to perfection to hold onto a one-handed stunner.
