Shamar Joseph’s Dominant Performance Helps WI Triumph Aus in 2nd Test at the Gabba

4 min read

He wasn’t even going to be at the ground on Sunday, after his toes bore the brunt of a Mitchell Starc yorker on day three of the Gabba Test. But West Indies were in with a chance of winning a Test match in Australia for the first time since February 1997, and Shamar Joseph wasn’t going to miss the chance to be part of that effort. The team doctor worked a miracle to put him on the field, where Shamar orchestrated another.

Australia were 93 for 2 in their chase of 216 when Shamar came into the attack and changed the complexion of the match. Injured toe and all, he bowled 11.5 overs on the trot, his speeds consistently above the 145kph mark, and took 7 for 68 to bowl West Indies to a magical 8-run win, all this in just his second Test match. Here’s how he took his wickets.
