In a positive development for the Rajasthan Royals fans, the team’s star Caribbean player Shimron Hetmyer has rejoined the squad after taking a break from the competition owing to his child’s birth. Hetmyer was unavailable for the matches against the Delhi Capitals and the Lucknow Super Giants.
While the Rajasthan Royals lost their match against the Delhi Capitals, they managed to register a win against the Lucknow Super Giants despite Hetmyer’s absence. In his absence, the team management gave a chance to Jimmy Neesham. The Kiwi all-rounder unluckily got run out last night in the match between the Rajasthan Royals and the Lucknow Super Giants.
According to a report by ESPNCricinfo, Hetmyer is undergoing quarantine right now and will be available to play in the important final league match for the Rajasthan Royals which is against the Chennai Super Kings.
Whose place will Shimron Hetmyer take in the Rajasthan Royals playing XI?
As mentioned ahead, Jimmy Neesham got an opportunity to play for the Rajasthan Royals when Hetmyer was not present. So it seems like Neesham will be the one who will be left out when Hetmyer is back with the squad.
Hetmyer was bought for a big price at the IPL 2022 Mega Auction, and with his explosive batting performances thus far, the left-handed batter has justified the faith that the Rajasthan Royals showed in him despite considering the fact that his national team does not pick him in the team due to fitness issues.
