Rajasthan Royals on Sunday said that its West Indian batter Shimron Hetmyer has left for Guyana for the birth of his first child.
“We are helping him (Hetmyer) in every way we can, and our best wishes are with him and his wife Nirvani,” Royals said on their official Twitter handle.
They also added that Hetymer would return to Mumbai soon and resume his duties for the franchise for the remaining matches of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022.
“We look forward to Shimron then returning to Mumbai, and resuming duties at the Royals for the remainder of our matches in IPL 2022,” the franchise said.
Royals, who defeated Punjab Kings in their last league game, will play Delhi Capitals in their next match.
