first_imgHero CPL 2018 By Clifton RossIn-form batsman Shimron Hetmyer said he’s looking forward to a full season of playing for the Guyana Amazon Warriors in this year’s Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL), adding that he strong believes his team can finally bring home the spoils.During an exclusive with Guyana Times Sport on Saturday, the West Indies left-hander; fresh off a hundred at home a few days ago said he was eyeing a full CPL season this year after having previous season’s cut short due to international commitments.“It’s been hard work for me I was here a few years ago I only got to play one game because I had West Indies duties in England. Like it said it has been hard work this year will be a full season so I will take it one step at a time and see how it goes”. Hetmyer explained.With some new faces in the side, coupled with a few familiar ones, Hetmyer believed that the hunger and desire to finally capture the elusive title will help the players tap into their A- Game, adding that the experienced guys will also need to play bigger roles.“I think we have a very good makeup cause it’s a bunch of guys balanced with youth and experience it’s always good to have in the team. Even with the guys who are not too experienced they are playing for franchise around the world, they share wisdom and work with us”.He continue, “This year we have a very good chance to taking it to the end this year, to take the trophy but we have to take it one game at a time and process by process and see how it goes for us”. He added.After pummelling the Bangladeshis in the second ODI for his 125, the highest by a Guyanese and West Indian at Providence, the former Windies U19 World Cup winning skipper said he was not fazed by his purple-patch but is instead working harder going forward.He however did admit that he was happy about his current form and is happy to have performed well at home; especially with the Warriors playing 7 games in total this year at home. “Form is very important, yes I did get a few score here the other day with the West Indies but I can’t get too complacent because that was the past I you have to look ahead to the future now”.Concluding his interview, the Windies batsman said winning this year will call for a lot of hard-work and courage from the players but he’s confident that winning the title for the first time is a possibility this year.“We have a few games here before we move into a next country, so I’m just trying to get as much at home where you’re most comfortable and know the soil. We just need to know that batting first we have to set a good total or we have to chase whatever the team posts”. Hetmyer ended.last_img read more
