Despite a slow start with just one wicket in the first innings, Joseph came back stronger when it mattered most. In a tense moment with West Indies defending a modest total of 216, he delivered a stellar performance, showcasing his resilience after recovering from a toe fracture.

The victory was made even sweeter for Shamar Joseph as West Indies cricketing legends like Brian Lara and Ian Bishop were present to witness the remarkable triumph at the Gabba. It was a moment of pride and joy for both the team and fans alike.

Shamar Joseph Feels Proud From His Performance.

“Having the great Sir Lara standing, Sir Brian Charles Lara, it’s amazing to do this in front of him, Ian Bishop and Sir Carl Hooper. It’s amazing.”

Shamar’s presence in the squad for the final day of play was uncertain due to an injury sustained the night before. The young pacer from Guyana had doubts about being able to play after being hit on the toe by a Mitchell Starc yorker, forcing him to retire hurt and undergo scans for the injury.

However, Shamar showed remarkable determination and resilience to lead the Caribbean team to victory despite the injury scare. He credited the unwavering support from his teammates, particularly his captain Kraigg Brathwaite and Alzarri Joseph, for motivating him to deliver a stellar performance on the field.

“Kraigg was like, ‘How are you feeling, buddy?’ I said I’m fine. ‘Are you sure?’ I said I’m not coming off. No matter what you do, I’m not coming off. You know, he just kept believing. All the time he was just telling me, ‘Just keep going, buddy. Just keep going.’

“Alzarri came to me and said the same thing. Take that pain and get wickets. That’s all I needed. I said that I would do it for him, and the team,” said Shamar Joseph.

When asked about the impact of the injury on him personally, Shamar expressed the doubt that lingered in his mind as he prepared for the final day of play. He described the experience as mentally and physically exhausting, highlighting the toll it took on him both mentally and physically.

“How I was feeling last night? I was on my bed in terrible pain. To be fair, I didn’t even get to sleep till like 3-4 o’clock in the morning. Around like 11:30 AM, Dr. (Denis) Byam called me and said that, ‘I need you at the ground’. I said, to be fair, I’m not feeling well, but I would just come and support.

“I got to the ground and he gave me some tablet. I don’t know what kind of tablet it is. But, it worked. It actually worked for me. And you know, as I said earlier, going out there to pick up eight wickets, to just get 154 runs, to win with a great team like Australia, that’s amazing,”.

After suffering a 1-0 setback in the series following their loss in the Adelaide Test, the Caribbean tourists staged a remarkable comeback to stun the Aussies on their home turf. In pursuit of 216 runs, Australia faltered and were dismissed for 207, thanks to the outstanding performance of rookie speedster Shamar Joseph, who wreaked havoc in Brisbane.
