Shimron Hetmyer, the left-handed batsman from West Indies had a great stint against India in the recently-concluded T20I and ODI series. He is currently in red-hot form with the bat and is doing convincingly well for his national side. Hetmyer has now stepped into a new phase of his life after getting engaged to his longtime girlfriend Nirvani Umrao on 25th of December.
The left-handed batsman made his debut for West Indies back in 2017 and since then he has emerged as one of the mainstays of his national side. So far, he has donned 16 Tests, 43 ODIs and 20 T20Is in which he has managed to score more than 2,000 runs across all the formats. Moreover, in the ODI series against India, he scored 180 runs in three games with a century at a brilliant average of 60. He also ended as the leading scorer of West Indies in the T20I series where he muscled 120 runs in three games.
Shimron Hetmyer’s girlfriend gives confirmation on social media
The last month of the year is turning out to be one of the best for Shimron Hetmyer. Hetymer got a serious reward for performing well against Team India as he was bought by Delhi Capitals in IPL 2020 auction for a whopping fee of 7.75 crores INR. In the previous season, he played for Royal Challengers Bangalore but failed to capitalise the opportunity in his debut season. And this time, the Delhi-based franchise has shown faith in the Caribbean batsman, who will play for them in the upcoming season of IPL.
Meanwhile, on 25th of December, Hetmyer’s girlfriend informed the fans that she has finally got engaged with the West Indian cricketer. She took it to Instagram and shared three stills and gave a caption that read – “My love asked me to marry him on Christmas Day and I said yes!!! I love you, baby,”. It was quite evident from the caption that the 23-year-old cricketer had a wish to marry his longtime girlfriend Umrao and she fulfilled it by getting engaged on the auspicious occasion of Christmas.
