Shamar’s Brilliance Leads West Indies to Historic Victory Over Australia


The West Indies, with a weakened team in Australia, introduced four new players, including Joseph, in the recent Test series. Despite losing in Adelaide last week and the expectation of a similar fate in the day-night Test in Brisbane, the West Indies surprised everyone. They secured their first win in Australia since 1997, with Joseph’s exceptional performance of 7-68 in just his second Test.

Australia, starting the day at 60-2, had Steve Smith scoring an unbeaten 91 and Cameron Green looking comfortable. However, Shamar Joseph, who had retired hurt the previous night, entered the attack later in the morning session. He dismissed Green and bowled Travis Head, causing Australia to go from 113-2 to 113-4. Although Smith seemed unfazed, Joseph struck again, getting Mitchell Marsh out and leaving Australia at 132-5.

Alex Carey was bowled out, and Mitchell Starc, attempting an aggressive approach, hit 21 runs before getting caught. Pat Cummins edged one to the wicketkeeper, and after the break, Alzarri Joseph got Nathan Lyon caught behind. Shamar Joseph then bowled Josh Hazlewood to wrap up the innings.
