Local cricketer Shimron Hetmyer, 22, has been appointed “Batting Director” of the Guyana Amazon Warriors team.
This is according to GAW’s Operations Manager, Omar Khan.
“Shimron Hetmyer will be appointed the director of batting. Let him take responsibility in the squad, we’re setting it up as a business unit,” Khan stated.
