Former West Indies Under 19 World Cup player Keemo Paul has been selected to replace Shimron Hetmyer for this year’s Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL).
Hetmyer was initially selected by the Guyana Amazon Warriors as the West Indies Youth Player but will be on West Indies Senior Team duties and 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 Trinidad and 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 he came back with a tournament winning six-wicket haul at the Providence National Stadium for the Guyana Jaguars.
The fifth annual Hero Caribbean Premier League opens on August 4 in St. Lucia and the final is set for September 9 in Trinidad.
