    heck of a show

    New Zealand have continued to grow from strength to strength in the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup. They were undefeated in the group stage and Martin Guptill's brilliant, unbeaten 237 in the quarter-final against West Indies in Wellington helped them reach the semi-finals for the seventh time in World Cups. It is at this stage that New Zealand have stumbled and coach Mike Hesson is cautious heading into the crunch semi-final.

    With just two days to go for the big match, Hesson has said the team does not have much time to bask in glory as the turnaround period is very small. He also said the show down against South Africa will be one "heck of a show".

    What is meant by 'heck of a show''? Is it a surprise show?

    Kumar Nadimuthu, please post in a bigger font. It's really hard to read. I've edited your first post to enlarge the font size.

    Re: heck of a show

    No, "a/one heck of a" (or "a/one hell of a") is used to mean "really impressive" or "amazing" (note that it doesn't work in all contexts).

    I got punched in the face last night. I've got one heck of a black eye.
    Wow! That's one heck of a cake. It's going to feed about a hundred people!
    That was one hell of a football match. I can't believe we won 13-0.
