Shimron Hetmyer leaves IPL for Guyana for the birth of his child
Tue, May 10, '22
West Indian left-hander Shimron Hetmyer has left the Rajasthan Royals in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) to return home to Guyana for the birth of his first child.
"My stuff is still left in the room," the 25-year-old said in an interview, indicating that he will be returning to India to see out the rest of the IPL.
Royals are in third place and are looking like one of the better-placed teams to make the playoffs which are set to begin on May 24.
However, the player has not made himself available for the West Indies white-ball tours of the Netherlands and Pakistan starting later this month.
Hetmyer left Mumbai on Sunday morning on the back of another high-impact cameo - 31 not out off 16 balls against Punjab Kings that helped seal a chase of 190.
