Cricket world goes berserk as Shamar Joseph scripts a historical win for West Indies against Australia


In a stunning display of bowling prowess, Shamar Joseph led the West Indies to a thrilling eight-run victory over Australia in the second Test at the Gabba on Sunday.

Despite facing doubts about his fitness after a painful toe injury from a Mitch Starc delivery on Day 3, the young lad was cleared of serious injury and delivered a heroic performance.

Shamar Joseph’s sensational 7-wicket haul

Resuming at their second innings at an overnight score of 60 for 2, Steve Smith and Cameron Green set a strong foundation, nearing half-centuries in the first 20 overs of the penultimate day. However, Joseph shifted the momentum with a superb delivery that dismissed Green and followed it up by sending Travis Head back to the pavilion for a golden duck.

Joseph continued to dominate, claiming the wickets of key Australian players like Mitch Marsh and Alex Carey. Registering his second 5-wicket haul in as many games, Joseph’s strategic prowess induced a lofted shot from Starc, caught brilliantly by Kevin Sinclair at point.
