Shamar Joseph’s heroic spell leads West Indies to historic test victory over Australia

In a stunning turn of events on January 28, pace bowler Shamar Joseph emerged as the hero for the West Indies, orchestrating a remarkable upset against Australia in Brisbane. The underdog West Indies, fielding an understrength side with four debutants, including Joseph, clinched victory by a mere eight runs, marking one of the greatest upsets in Test history.

Having suffered defeat in the previous Test in Adelaide, where they succumbed within three days, expectations were low for the West Indies in the day-night Test in Brisbane. However, Joseph’s exceptional performance, spearheading the bowling attack, turned the tables in their favor.

In a gripping second session on Sunday, the West Indies successfully bowled out Australia for 207, setting the stage for their first triumph on Australian soil since their memorable victory in Perth back in 1997. This unexpected win has undoubtedly etched its place in Test cricket history, showcasing the resilience and skill of the West Indies team against all odds.
