A day ago. Shamar Joseph sprained his big toe on Mitchell Starc’s 141kmh yorker at the Gabba on Saturday. It is not possible to continue batting with a bleeding leg, so he was forced to leave the wicket with his injured leg. He left the field with his teammates on his shoulders. The second innings of West Indies stopped at 193 runs.

Shamar could not enter the field at the beginning of Australia’s second innings. Australia ended the day with 60 runs for 2 wickets in a target of 216 runs. There was uncertainty about Shamar’s game on the fourth day of the Brisbane Test today. Blowing away the cloud of fear, he entered the field. Not just fielding. Came to bowl in the 29th over of the match. He turned his hand for 11.5 consecutive overs. This 24-year-old Caribbean pacer has made a place in the pages of history for what he has done during this time.

Windies won the Test after 27 years on Australian soil. Debutant Shamar took 7 of the last 8 wickets of the hosts in this series. He snatched the match from Australia like a wounded tiger. The cricket world is in a frenzy about Gabor’s hero who turned the pages of history.

But how many people knew Shamar before playing only the second test! South African legend AB de Villiers took to Wikipedia to find out the details of the Gaba fairytale hero. Tears came to the eyes of the Proteas legend after reading the story of the rise of the Caribbean pacer. De Villiers expressed his feelings on social media X on Saturday.

Shamar, who had left the field with the help of his teammates a day earlier, is running as usual after a day. He didn’t just run alone, he pulled the entire Windies. Left behind ‘opener’ Steven Smith’s fighting innings. Not only Smith, but the entire Australian team, Shamar has pulled all the lights of Gabor towards himself.

But who will say, this is only the second test of Shamar? The right-handed pacer got the opportunity to wear the jersey of the national team in the Adelaide Test in the current series. In that Test, he took the wicket of Smith in the first delivery with the ball in hand, as if he had announced that he has emerged as a hunter. He took 5 wickets in Test debut in Adelaide. No matter how many adjectives describe what Brisbane did today, it probably won’t be able to convey the enormity of it.

It is natural that not much information will be known about him who has only two matches experience in the world of cricket. Like all cricket fans, de Villiers was also curious about Shamar. Of course, what Shamar did, is there a way to not be interested?

Mr. 360 degrees took help of Wikipedia to know the details. Feelings after reading the story of the Caribbean pacer, AB said on social media X (formerly Twitter), ‘If you want to think about life anew, go to Wikipedia and read Shamar’s biography. Reading the story of his journey brought tears to my eyes. At least you will get inspiration.’

In another tweet, de Villiers wrote, ‘Shamar Joseph’s fairy tale. Special moment.’ Of course, the place Shamar came from would defy a fairy tale. An isolated village in Guyana, with no access to the capital except by river. Sometimes it takes two or three days to reach there by boat. The village where the internet went in 2018. Shamar Joseph who emerged from that Barakara village is trending on the internet today, in the pages of history.
