West Indies tempo legend Andy Roberts has slammed batsman Shimron Hetmyer for opting out of the England excursion as a result of well being considerations amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
In conjunction with senior professional Darren Bravo, Hetmyer pulled out of the excursion of UK and compelled the Roger Harper-led variety committee to make some last-minute adjustments.
“They’d have performed an integral a part of the batting. Up to we do not like the best way Hetmyer has been taking part in, he is among the batsmen for the longer term. However any individual has to get into his head and let him realise that you’ll’t rating runs sitting within the pavilion,” Roberts mentioned in an episode on Michael Protecting’s YouTube channel.
Protecting, Roberts’ similarly illustrious tempo bowling spouse during the 1970s and 80s, had known as the 2 batsmen’s transfer “unlucky”.
Consistent with Roberts, the problem for many West Indies batsmen used to be they “do not truly educate and practise sufficient to paintings the ball into gaps. We consider in limitations.”
With the likes of Alzarri Joseph, Chemar Holder, Oshane Thomas and Shannon Gabriel in control of the Windies tempo assault, Roberts sees a vivid long run.
“I’m happy to look there’s a form of a resurgence within the final couple of months, now not years, simply the final couple of months – there are some children are coming via and I’m hoping that we do not try to be expecting an excessive amount of off them too quickly,” Roberts mentioned.
