After missing a flight, Shimron Hetmyer was cut from the West Indies T20 World Cup roster.


Shimron Hetmyer missed his rescheduled flight to Australia that had been altered from Saturday, October 1 at his request, which is why the CWI Selection Panel made its judgment.

Shimron Hetmyer, an aggressive middle-order batsman, will be replaced in the squad for the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 by Shamarh Brooks, according to Cricket West Indies (CWI), after Hetmyer missed his rescheduled trip to Australia. Shimron Hetmyer has been replaced in the West Indies squad for the forthcoming ICC T20 World Cup in Australia by Shamarh Brooks, according to a statement from Cricket West Indies (CWI) to the International Cricket Council (ICC).

Shimron Hetmyer missed his flight to Australia that had been changed from Saturday, October 1 at his request due to family obligations, prompting the CWI Selection Panel to make its judgment. It was extremely difficult to find a seat for him to leave Guyana on Monday, October 3, so he had to pass on the first T20 International (T20I) match against Australia on Wednesday, October 5, at the Metricon Stadium.

Hetmyer told Jimmy Adams, the director of cricket, this morning that he wouldn’t be able to make it to the airport in time for his departure to New York this afternoon.

“The Selection Panel unanimously decided to replace Shimron Hetmyer with Shamarh Brooks in our T20 World Cup team, and we informed the CWI Board of Directors of this decision this afternoon. Shimron’s flight was moved from Saturday to Monday for family reasons, but we made it clear to him that if there were any more problems or delays with his travel to Australia, we would be forced to replace him because we couldn’t risk the team’s ability to train for this crucial international event “Adams said.

“Shamarh participated in our most recent T20 International teams and put out significant efforts in the closing rounds of the just-completed CPL. He will travel to Australia as soon as possible this week, and I wish him and the entire team the best of luck in the competition “Added he.

Only at can you listen to the most recent music.
