VIDEO: The one who hurt him also broke him, took revenge from Australia along with Sood, took 5 wickets in the second consecutive test

New Delhi. West Indies fast bowler Shamar Joseph was unable to walk a day earlier. But, on Saturday, on the fourth day of the Brisbane Test, he wreaked havoc on Australia. He has achieved the feat of taking five wickets in the second consecutive Test.

Earlier, on the third day of this Test, an inswinging yorker by Australian fast bowler Mitchell Starc went straight to Joseph’s thumb. He was not even able to stand. For this reason, he had to retire hurt and return from the field and despite the fall of 9 wickets, West Indies’ innings was over.

Joseph showed his courage despite the pain
Looking at Shamar Joseph it did not seem that he would be able to bowl on the fourth day. But, he endured the pain and played for West Indies and changed the entire game within 21 balls. Australia needed 216 runs to win. When the third day’s play ended, Australia’s score was 60 runs at the loss of 2 wickets.

On the fourth day, Australia needed 156 runs to win and had 8 wickets left. It seemed that Australia would win this match easily. But, then Shamar Joseph wreaked havoc on the Kangaroo team.

Green-head hunted on 2 consecutive balls
Shamar Joseph dismissed Cameron Green and Travis Head on two consecutive balls in the 31st over of Australia’s innings. Joseph clean bowled both these batsmen. Head could not even open his account and was out on the very first ball. After these two setbacks, Joseph’s morale reached sky high and after this he completely pushed Australia on the backfoot by dismissing Mitchell Marsh (10) and then wicketkeeper Alex Carey (2).

Joseph did not stop here and completed his revenge by dismissing Mitchell Starc and also achieved the feat of taking 5 wickets for the second consecutive Test. After this Joseph hunted Australian captain Pat Cummins and completed his 6 wickets.

Despite being injured, Shamar Joseph bowled 10 consecutive overs on the fourth day. This shows how big is the passion of this 24 year old bowler. Whatever may be the outcome of this test. But, the world will remember this performance of Joseph for years.
