'Letting down the team and himself' - Simmons left frustrated after Hetmyer fails fitness test again

West Indies batsman Shimron Hetmyer has failed yet another fitness test, a situation that has left West Indies head coach Phil Simmons exasperated.

Hetmyer was left out of the team for the upcoming visits of Ireland and England after failing to pass fitness drills administered in his home country of Guyana recently.

The occasion is the third in the last three years that the athlete is failing to get a passing grade for the West Indies basic fitness requirement. Hetmyer was first left out of the squad in 2020, ahead of the Sri Lanka tour, and then again later that year during the home visit of the same team.

Simmons expressed frustration that Hetmyer was not only letting down himself but failing to maintain the required standards but also the entire team.

“It’s the same old, same old. He did his fitness assessment in Guyana and he came way below the required mark,” Simmons told members of the media during a conference call on Friday.

“Again, it is something that is heart-wrenching because you know that you are part of this team, and you have to keep a certain fitness to be part of this team and you keep letting down your teammates.”

Simmons added the player was also “letting down himself.”

Simmons is an ASS ~

“For testing to be fair, everybody should be in the same place

on the same day

doing the same test

and you can all see them doing it".

I saw this and nearly spat out my orange juice. A former first class opening batsman wrote :
Here's the other thing, let's see Cornwall chase a ball to fine leg or thirdman. That should be his test, run from slip to fineleg 20 times. Then put on pads and run five threes. Put a stop watch on him and then tell me how he plays and Hety can't.

According to Guyana Eagles Head Coach, Esuan Crandon, the majority of the players re-taking the Yo-Yo test improved their scores. A group consisting of Shimron Hetmyer, Chandrapaul Hemraj, and Keemo Paul were reportedly among those present for the drills.

Hetmyer is not Centrally Contracted by CWI , He was Refused by Them ..
Why is the Current Coach so concerned about Him, instead of his Contracted Team ?

100 for 'Hetty'!

Shimron Hetmyer completes a hundred on day three of the Guyana Harpy Eagles Best v Best Four-Day game between Johnson XI and Paul XI at the Albion ground.

Resuming on 69, the left-hander, whose fitness has been a topical issue in recent times, reached the landmark off 159 balls, hitting five fours.
