Shimrom Hetmyer came to the RCB side with a lot of hype but failed to do any justice as he failed to play even one match-winning innings and it came as no surprise that the team let him go. However, Dale Steyn and Marcus Stoinis had couple of good efforts but injuries came in Steyn's way and the Aussie Stoinis might not be available for the entire length of the season.
