LSG vs RR IPL 2022: Is Shimron Hetmyer Playing Today? Here’s the update

The Rajasthan Royals definitely missed the services of Shimron Hetmyer in the batting department during the last loss suffered at the hands of Delhi Capitals. After playing a brilliant unbeaten knock of 31 runs off 16 balls to guide home the Rajasthan Royals against Punjab Kings, the Caribbean batsman left the IPL 2022 bio-bubble and travelled back home in Guyana for the birth of his first child. With just two games remaining in the league stage of the tournament, there is still no clear update on the availability of Hetmyer and he will have to undergo a mandatory quarantine of three days before rejoining the Rajasthan Royals camp.

For the Rajasthan Royals, Shimron Hetmyer has already contributed some important innings with the bat in the T20 competition. In IPL 2022, Hetmyer has smashed close to 300 runs at a phenomenal strike-rate of more than 160.
