It is normal for players who are not turning out for the West Indies to return to their franchises when a regional competition is on, but that did not happen yesterday with Shimron Hetmyer and the Guyana Jaguars who began their contest with the Jamaica Scorpions at Sabina Park.

Hetmyer had been dropped by the Windies ahead of an away series against Bangladesh after failing a fitness test and was expected to take his place with the Jaguars on Thursday.

However, according to the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB), Hetmyer did not follow the protocol associated with contracted players not on West Indies duties ahead of the game.

“Players who are not on West Indies duties but are contracted to the West Indies are supposed to report to their franchise,” GCB Secretary Anand Sanasie was reported as saying.

“Since returning from West Indies duties he has not reported to the franchise for training … which automatically makes him unavailable,” said Sanasie.

Hetmyer and Windies opener Evin Lewis fell afoul of Windies’ fitness requirements but the team’s chief selector, Roger Harper, had said the Guyanese left-hander was well on his way to getting himself together.

With that in mind, Cricket West Indies had said Hetmyer and Lewis would have been retested in another two weeks.

Next week the Jaguars will go to Grenada where they take on the Windward Islands Volcanoes and Sanasie believes whenever Hetmyer makes himself available, he will be [art of the team.

“We wish him well. Once he has made himself available he would be selected to play for the franchise,” said Sanasie.

The Guyana High Court on Wednesday declared that the executives of the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) are illegal and cannot hold themselves out to be office bearers or to do anything as it relates to the operations of the Guyana Cricket Board because their last elections were unlawful, illegal, null, void and to no legal effect

President of the Guyana Cricket Board Anand Sanasie has questioned whether the team of Ricky Skerritt is experienced enough to lead Cricket West Indies into the future.

The Guyana Cricket Board’s Anand Sanasie has taken umbrage at remarks made by CWI presidential candidate, Ricky Skerritt, who criticized the GCB for not giving him a chance to make his case as to why he should be the next president of the CWI.
