Explosive left-hander, Shimron Hetmyer has been appointed captain of the Guyana Amazon Warriors team for the 2022 Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL).

The 25-year-old top order batter has been with the Guyana Amazon Warriors since 2016 and played 47 matches with one ton and eight half-centuries under his belt.

Hetmyer, a key figure in the West Indies set up, has shown leadership skills from his youth days where he led West Indies Under-19 to their first ICC youth World Cup title.

Speaking on his appointment, Hetmyer said, “I’m really happy to be appointed captain of my country franchise, I’m excited to lead this group of men! I can’t wait for the CPL to begin.”

Head Coach of the franchise, Rayon Griffith, welcomed Hetmyer’s appointment and said that he was happy to see him get the opportunity to captain a senior franchise.

Chairman of the Guyana Amazon Warriors franchise, Dr. Bobby Ramroop stated, “We are pleased to appoint our first Guyanese captain since the 2013 season. Hetmyer has been a main part of our set up over the years and we believe the time is right to have him lead the team.”

Guyana Amazon Warriors squad: Shimron Hetmyer (captain), Romario Shepherd, Gudakesh Motie, Shai Hope, Jermaine Blackwood, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Odean Smith, Veerasammy Permaul, Matthew Nandu, Junior Sinclair, Imran Tahir, Colin Ingram, Tabraiz Shamsi, Heinrich Klaasen, Paul Stirling, Ronsford Beaton, Keemo Paul.
