It was painful but I said I would bowl Australia’s 7-wicket hauler Shamar Joseph. West Indies fast bowler Shamar Joseph, who is the hero of West Indies‘ historic victory against Australia, did not bring the playing kit to the ground on the fourth day of the Test match.
Shamar Joseph took 7 wickets to make the team win in Australia after 27 years and took away the win from the host team by just 8 runs in this match.
The hero of the second Test, Shamar Joseph, believed that he would not be able to bowl again in the Test, but he overcame the pain and then performed a memorable feat.
Shamar Joseph was hit on the toe by Mitchell Starc’s yorker a day earlier, unable to continue batting in pain and unsure of bowling.
“I don’t remember anything except that I ran towards the boundary after the win and everyone was behind me, I didn’t expect to be able to play, I didn’t go for fielding on the fourth day,” Shamar Joseph said about the memorable match.
The West Indian bowler said that the captain told me that I would bowl, to which I said that I did not even bring the kit, I waited for the kit because I thought the captain needed me.
“I was in pain but I said I would bowl,” he added.
It should be noted that Shamar Joseph started bowling 40 minutes after the start of the game and no Australian player was dismissed during that time.
It should be noted that in the Test played in Brisbane on Sunday, West Indies gave a historic defeat to Australia after 27 years at their home ground.
