Keemo Paul replaces Shimron Hetmyer in Guyana Amazon Warriors squad
The Guyana Amazon Warriors have announced that West Indies Under 19 World Cup Champion player Keemo Paul has been selected as a replacement for Shimron Hetmyer for the 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.
GAW Operations Manager Omar Khan said of Keemo’s selection: “We welcome Keemo to the Guyana Amazon Warriors Team for this year’s Hero CPL.
“He is a very talented and promising player with lots of potential and his all-round ability brings more value to our team.
“This is another way of giving young Guyanese players opportunities to be part of the biggest party in sport, the Hero CPL, and showcase their skills and talents to the world.”
