Hetmyer, Chase meet minimum fitness standard; available for WI selection


Batsman Shimron Hetmyer and all-rounder Roston Chase have met the West Indies minimum fitness standard and are now available for selection. That’s the word from Cricket West Indies Director of Cricket, Jimmy Adams.

Hetmyer, Chase and fast bowlers Sheldon Cottrell and Oshane Thomas had all failed the fitness test ahead of the selection of the West Indies T20 and ODI squads to face Sri Lanka and were subsequently overlooked.

Adams, in an update to the media on Monday afternoon, said: “We had done a press conference very recently and we had explained that there were some players that had missed the minimum fitness standard for selection and it’s just an update that two of those four players have since then met that standard, that’s Roston Chase and Shimron Hetmyer.”

“They would now be available for selection; the next selection meeting would be around the Test matches coming up later in March.”
