Paul replaces Hetmyer in Guyana Amazon Warriors squad


The management of the Guyana Amazon Warriors has announced that West Indies Under-19 World Cup Champions player Keemo Paul has been selected as a replacement for Shimron Hetmyer ahead of this year’s CPL.

Hetmyer, who was initially selected by the Guyana Amazon Warriors as the West Indies Youth Player, will be on West Indies Senior Team duties and as such Paul has been chosen as his replacement.

Paul, who was Hetmyer’s deputy when the West Indies Under-19 team won the Youth World Cup in 2016, made his List A debut in January 2015, playing for the West Indies Under-19s in Tobago.

In March this year, the 19-year-old right-handed all-rounder’s First-Class debut was overshadowed by injury at the Queen’s Park Oval, but came back with a tournament-winning six-wicket haul at Providence for the Guyana Jaguars.

The fifth edition of Hero Caribbean Premier League opens on August 4 in St. Lucia and the final is set for September 9 in Trinidad.
