Hetmyer dropped from West Indies World Cup squad over missed flight

by Pakistan Latest News Update

West Indies dropped Shimron Hetmyer from the upcoming T20 World Cup in Australia after the batter missed a rescheduled flight, Cricket West Indies introduced on Monday.

The 25-year-old from Guyana was changed on the roster by Shamarh Brooks in a call by the Cricket West Indies choice panel after Hetmyer missed his flight to Australia, which had been moved as a result of household causes.
After a seat was discovered on a Monday flight to New York, Hetmyer advised CWI on Monday morning that he could be unable to get to the Guyana airport in time to make his flight to New York.
“This afternoon we informed the CWI board of directors that the selection panel had unanimously decided to replace Shimron Hetmyer with Shamarh Brooks in our T20 World Cup squad,” CWI director of cricket Jimmy Adams mentioned.
“Whilst we changed Shimron’s flight from Saturday to Monday due to family reasons, it was made clear to him that if there were any further delays and issues with his travel to Australia then we would have no choice but to replace him in the squad, as we are not prepared to compromise the team’s ability to prepare for this extremely important global event.”
Brooks will fly out later this week and miss T20 Worldwide matches in opposition to Australia on Wednesday at Gold Coast and Friday at Brisbane, as a substitute becoming a member of the squad at Melbourne.
