Shimron Hetmyer One-Handed Screamer In The Deep To Destroy Martin Guptill. Shimron Hetmyer displayed great athleticism by taking a one-handed catch in the deep to end Martin Guptill’s innings in the first T20I.
The West Indies fell to New Zealand in the first T20 International (T20I) on Wednesday. But their players put on some impressive performances. The most memorable piece of fielding was probably Shimron Hetmyer’s brilliant one-hand catch in the deep that gave them their first breakthrough in the form of Martin Guptill. New Zealand started well after being put in to bat by Nicholas Pooran. Were building a solid opening partnership when Odean Smith sent Guptill and Devon Conway packing off consecutive deliveries in the eighth over.
Guptill was the first to go as he attempted to cut Smith’s short and wide delivery. It appear to be a six, but Hetmyer, who was running behind from point. Jump and pluck the ball out of the air with his left hand, giving his team an unexpected wicket.

West Indies weren’t done yet, as wicketkeeper Devon Thomas demonstrated another excellent piece of fielding off the next delivery.
Smith passed the ball short down the leg side to Conway. Who gloved it high in the air as he looked to pull.
The tricky part was that the ball went up to the off-side behind Conway, while Thomas was already moving to his right.
However, he was able to quickly change his course and dive to his left for a one-handed catch.
New Zealand were suddenly reduced to 62/2, but captain Kane Williamson, playing his first T20I since the T20 World Cup final in 2021, hit 47 off 33 deliveries to keep his team in the game.
