finger injury rules out West Indies fast bowler Shamar Joseph from upcoming ILT20.


Shamar Joseph played a pivotal role in a historic Test victory over Australia, claiming seven wickets in the second innings at the Gabba. Despite this success, he faces a setback due to an injury.

Joseph sustained the injury on the third day of the Test when his toe was struck by a delivery from Mitchell Starc.

At 24, Joseph initially faced concerns of a toe fracture, but those worries were dispelled on the fourth day of the Test. However, this turn of events means he will miss playing for Dubai Capitals in the ILT20, having been selected for the tournament before the Australia Test series.

Now, Joseph will prioritize a recovery period at home before gearing up to join Peshawar Zalmi in the upcoming PSL in Pakistan.
