Shimron Hetmyer, a left-hand batsman, had played four games after his first-class debut for Guyana in April 2014 before he led West Indies to their first Under-19 World Cup title, in Bangladesh in 2015-16.
"We identified Hetmyer as captain because we liked the way he went about it in the field," West Indies Under-19 coach Graeme West had said before the World Cup. "He did things a little differently, he was very positive. In terms of passion and enthusiasm, you can't fault him."
Hetmyer scored 158 runs in six games in that competition, including successive fifties in the quarter-final and semi-final. It was his second Under-19 World Cup - he had also featured in the 2014 edition of the tournament in the United Arab Emirates.
Hetmyer was picked up by CPL franchise Guyana Amazon Warriors for the 2016 edition of the tournament.
