In one of the most exciting Test matches at the Gabba on Sunday, West Indies surprised everyone by defeating Australia by eight runs.

The 24-year-old Shamar Joseph was the clear star of the day for the visitors as he took seven wickets to secure his team’s first Test victory on Australian territory since 1997.

Brian Lara, a legendary batter from the West Indies, lost control of his emotions while calling the game when his team pulled off the incredible victory.

After taking Mitchell Starc’s last wicket, Joseph hugged Australia’s Adam Gilchrist, and the commentary box was filled with emotions as the West Indies pulled off an incredible victory.

Joseph had to retire hurt on Saturday evening after a Starc yorker injured his toe. He showed amazing courage by continuing to bowl despite limping between overs during the run-chase.

Joseph took seven of the remaining eight Australian wickets on Sunday, as the inexperienced West Indies side, missing key players like Jason Holder and Kyle Mayers, pulled off a stunning upset by handing Australia their first-ever loss in a day-night match.

Joseph’s incredible spell saw him dismiss Cameron Green with a delivery that went through his defence, give Travis Head a king pair with a yorker, get Mitchell Marsh caught at slip, bowl Alex Carey, force Mitchell Starc to top-edge a pull shot, see Joshua de Silva take a superb catch to remove Pat Cummins, and end with Josh Hazlewood’s off-stump being uprooted.

Joseph was only a net-bowler in the Caribbean Premier League a few months ago and made his first-class debut last February.
