GEORGETOWN – West Indies batting star Shimron Hetmyer made himself unavailable for Guyana Jaguars’ fourth-round match in the Regional Four-Day Championship after failing to report to the franchise, the Guyana Cricket Board has said.

The 23-year-old left-hander was dropped from the West Indies side for the ODI tour of Sri Lanka on fitness grounds but was not named in the 13-man squad to face Jamaica Scorpions at the National Stadium in the match which started here Thursday.

GCB secretary, Anand Sanasie, said Hetmyer had not followed established protocol for contracted players not on West Indies duty.

“Players who are not on West Indies duties but are contracted to the West Indies are supposed to report to their franchise,” Sanasie told News Room here.  (CMC)
