Rajasthan Royals will miss the services of Shimron Hetmyer as he has left the Indian Premier League 2022 for the birth of his first child. “My stuff is still left in the room,’ the 25-year-old indicated that he would return to India to play in some of the remaining games.
RR are third in the points table and are better-placed teams to make the knockouts scheduled to be played from May 24.
Hetmyer has played an important role in the success of the Rajasthan-based franchise. The left-handed batter has scored 291 runs at an average of 72. He has accumulated his runs at a strike rate of 214.28 in the death overs.
James Neesham, Daryl Mitchell, Karun Nair, Rassie van der Dussen and Nathan Coulter-Nile are in the mix to replace him in the playing XI.
