The West Indies star Shimron Hetmyer has joined the Rajasthan team ahead of the 2022 season of the Indian T20 League. While in quarantine, he answered some of the fan questions. One interesting revelation he made was the reason for his coloured hair.
In a video released by Rajasthan’s official Twitter handle, he was asked why his hair was pink. Answering that, he said this became a thing last year when he played for the Delhi team. He said that his wife asked him to experiment with the Blue colour because the jersey colour of Delhi is blue. This time it is pink for Rajasthan’s pink jersey he said.
“This actually came out from last year. My wife is the colour genius behind the whole thing. Last year, when I was in Delhi, she was there as well and she was like why don’t you colour your hair blue just to see what it looks like? You know, let’s see if you enjoy it.’ And I was like ‘okay sure no problem'”.
“And after that, she was like ‘okay this year you’re in pink so let’s do pink’. Last year, she was saying that she was wondering what my hair would look like in pink. So, I guess I am here in pink.”

Hetmyer reveals who he looks up to
When answering the question of who he looks up to in cricket, Hetmyer revealed it to be Kane Williamson because of how he approaches the game. He said that he was a simple player, which is why he admires him.
“Kane Williamson is someone that I look up to in terms of how he goes about his game and how he bats. He is basically someone simple. He at least seems like someone simple when he goes about how he makes runs and so on. I really try as much as possible to instil some of that in my game. Keep my game as simple as possible and stay in my little bubble and go about making runs my way,” he said.
