During India's series-leveling 107-run win over the West Indies in the second ODI match at Visakhapatnam on Wednesday, Shreyas Iyer produced a sensational fielding effort to dismiss dangerous Shimron Hetmyer.
The Windies were set a target of 389 by India with Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul scoring centuries as part of a 227-run opening stand. The visitors started the chase well with a 61-run stand between Shai Hope and Evin Lewis. Shardul Thakur got the breakthrough off the last ball of the 11th over with Lewis mistiming a pull right down the throat of Shreyas Iyer.
Iyer, who played a blinder of an innings earlier in the match, then ran Hetmyer out in the 14th over. Hetmyer played the first ball of the over through the point and it looked certain to go for a four. But Iyer chased down the ball and stopped it with a diving effort. Then came his rocket throw at Ravindra Jadeja, who whipped the bails off to catch Hetmyer short.
