‘There’s always another side to every story told’ – Hetmyer’s girlfriend Niravni opens up about the flight miss incident

West Indies dropped Shimron Hetmyer from the upcoming T20 World Cup in Australia after the batter missed a rescheduled flight, Cricket West Indies announced on Monday. It was a huge disappointment to the fans in the Caribbean.

The 25-year-old from Guyana was replaced on the roster by Shamarh Brooks in a decision by the Cricket West Indies selection panel after Hetmyer missed his flight to Australia, which had been moved due to family reasons.

After a seat was found on a Monday flight to New York, Hetmyer told CWI on Monday morning that he would be unable to get to the Guyana airport in time to make his flight to New York.

“This afternoon we informed the CWI board of directors that the selection panel had unanimously decided to replace Shimron Hetmyer with Shamarh Brooks in our T20 World Cup squad,” CWI director of cricket Jimmy Adams said.

“Whilst we changed Shimron’s flight from Saturday to Monday due to family reasons, it was made clear to him that if there were any further delays and issues with his travel to Australia then we would have no choice but to replace him in the squad, as we are not prepared to compromise the team’s ability to prepare for this extremely important global event.” CWI director added

But Hetmyer’s girlfriend has posted a story on Instagram saying that the truth about the incident is yet to be revealed.

She also provided support for her boyfriend and was confident that Hetmyer’s side of the story will be heard one day.

“There’s always another side to every story told #whatsinthedarkmustcometolight @shetmyer always gonna support you love no matter what” – Shimron Hetmyer shared a story of his girlfriend on Instagram. “Always is love” – Hetmyer wrote on his story.
