It should be noted that Hetmyer would have made it to Australia in time for West Indies’ World Cup campaign. West Indies play their first-round match on October 17 against Scotland. However, knowing that, the CWI selection panel decided to omit Shimron Hetmyer completely from the squad.

“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.

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.

We are not prepared to compromise the team’s ability to prepare for this extremely important global event,” the CWI said in a statement.

Instead, Shamarah Brooks has been named a replacement for Hetmyer in T20 World Cup squad. This is not the first time that CWI has taken a harsh decision regarding Hetmyer. Earlier, he was dropped from the squad following T20 World Cup 2021 on fitness grounds. While Hetmyer proved them wrong by doing brilliantly in IPL 2022 for Rajasthan Royals.

He was recalled for the India series. However, he did not have a great run. He also had a poor run against New Zealand at home. In the recently concluded CPL 2022, Hetmyer finished with 281 runs in 11 matches at an average of just 25.54 and a strike rate of 124.33.

“Shamarh has been a part of our recent T20 International squads and delivered strong performances in the latter stages of the recently concluded CPL. He will fly out as soon as possible this week to Australia and I wish him and all the squad all the very best for the Tournament,” CWI said in a statement.
