Shimron Hetmyer returns to West Indies squad for T20Is against India and New Zealand

Batter Shimron Hetmyer has returned to West Indies’ T20I squad for the upcoming five-match series against India and the following three-match series against New Zealand after clearing a fitness test. Hetmyer had been omitted from West Indies’ recent squads on fitness grounds, and was more recently with the ODI squad in Port-of-Spain to work with the trainers and the support staff. He last represented West Indies in November 2021, during the T20 World Cup in the UAE.

Opening batter Evin Lewis, however, was not part of the squad once again. After Lewis was overlooked for the recent white-ball series at home against Bangladesh, chief selector Desmond Haynes had said that Lewis had not completed a fitness test that had been arranged for him during his IPL stint with Lucknow Super Giants.

West Indies squad: Nicholas Pooran (capt), Rovman Powell (vice-capt), Shamarh Brooks, Dominic Drakes, Shimron Hetmyer, Jason Holder, Akeal Hosein, Alzarri Joseph, Brandon King, Kyle Mayers, Obed McCoy, Keemo Paul, Romario Shepherd, Odean Smith, Devon Thomas, Hayden Walsh Jr.
