New Delhi: West Indies player Shimron Hetmyer has been ruled out the national squad of T20 World Cup. The decision was taken after the star player missed the flight to Australia. 

Hetmyer had missed on his rescheduled flight to Australia due to family reasons. He would be missing on the first T20I against Australia on Wednesday, October 5.

To replace Hetmyer, Shamrah Brooks has been selected. “Cricket West Indies (CWI) has today informed the International Cricket Council (ICC) that Shamarh Brooks has replaced Shimron Hetmyer in the West Indies Squad for the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup in Australia,” said CWI in a statement.

Director of Cricket Jimmy Adams said, “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, as we are not prepared to compromise the team’s ability to prepare for this extremely important global event.”

“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,” he added.”
