Hetmeyer, on first glance, has a decent technique....

Gets in line with the ball and then leaves

he has to watch out for the ball that comes in late (wishful advice)

I'm just being proactive.

When we get bowled out for a sub-par score, the pitch will certainly be attributed.

So far Hetmyer knows where is his off stump.

The Non-Bajans look to be playing with better techniques..

Head is quite still of both Powell and Hetmeyer

For once I have to say the selectors seem to be putting some though into their selctions, fast tracking Hetmyer into the West Indies Senior Team, and recognizing Singh. I really hope Hetmyer puts his head down,forget IPL riches and establish himself.I still believe he is ideally suited for limited overs but wishing him all the best.
Good Luck Guys

Hetmyer looks like a strong off-side player.

He is leaving the ball well.

One apparent weakness seems he isn't playing with soft hands. Not looking to drop the ball or work them for singles.

Not a bad debut on that hell hole of a Sabina pitch.

I'll take the 12 runs (with 2 boundaries) any day.

In reply to Drapsey C'mon, I like Hetmyer as much as anybody and I look forward to great things in the future - but 'not a bad debut' is when you make 40 or 50 and fail to convert to a big score. He was dismissed by intelligent fast bowling, but this is no hell hole of a pitch. It's giving the pace bowlers assistance, but this is Day 1 of a test match - that's what you want, not a T20 flat track. This type of pitch separates the pretenders from the real deal. All now, Hetmeyer should be replaying the tape, talking to Jimmy Adams and asking how he could have protected this off stump better. That ball would have dismissed many more experienced left handers however.

He was set up nicely, bunch of outswingers then one that nipped back. Thought it kept low but it was just good bowling.
