Sharjah : Delhi Capitals' batsman Shimron Hetmyer says team's head coach Ricky Ponting has 'done one hell of a job' in improving his pull shot at the nets.

The West Indies batsman had smashed 45 off 24 balls in the win over Rajasthan Royals on Friday, hitting his first six with a pull shot that was deemed perfect. This was his first innings of note in this edition.

"It's been fun to be around Ricky. A very good guy. He is right now working on my pull shot," said the 23-year-old Hetmyer.

"He has observed that in last few games, people have been bowling short to me. So far he is working on my pulling and he has done one hell of a job with me. He is teaching me the art of being a better finisher and I am getting there gradually."

Ponting, who played most of his cricket on fast and bouncy surfaces in Australia, was one of the best exponents of pull shots.

Hetmyer has struggled also because he has been asked to go after the bowling right from the start. "What I try to do now is to ensure that every game, I have to hit a six. At least, one six. (I am) working towards that at moment."

He added that this role is new for him and he is still struggling to come to terms with it.

"I am still working towards getting better with each and every game."
