IND vs WI: I miss Hetmyer when he is not around, says Kieron Pollard
Hetmyer hasn’t played for the West Indies since November 2021, and Pollard is eager to welcome him back.
“I think the coaches have spoken on their assessment of Shimron. I miss Shimron when he is not around. He is a young player and a superstar in his own right. He will get it right and get back to the West Indies squad pretty soon,” ESPNcricinfo quoted Pollard as saying.
“I will be looking forward to having him. We know what he can do as an individual and he has a bright future. You can never write off a guy who is 25. My love for Shimron is paramount, and he knows that, and we all know that.
“It is a matter of time for him to do all that is necessary to get back to the team. We will welcome him with open arms,” he added.
Three T20Is between India and the West Indies will begin on Wednesday at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Last week, India crushed West Indies 3-0 in an ODI series.
Speaking about the Eden Gardens wicket, Pollard said, “I think it is a very good cricketing wicket, obviously there is something for bowlers. In the night the atmosphere is chilled and with dew around ball should be able to slide onto the bat.”
