Debutant Shamar Joseph Cherishes Dream Wicket of Steve Smith in AUS vs WI 1st Test

In a stunning debut performance, West Indies pacer Shamar Joseph left an indelible mark on the opening day of the Test series against Australia, claiming the prized wicket of star batter Steve Smith with his very first delivery.

The match marked a new chapter for Smith as he took on the role of opening the batting in Tests for the first time. However, his stint was cut short at just 12 runs, courtesy of Joseph’s impeccable accuracy and skill on the field.

Addressing the media after the conclusion of play on Day 1, Shamar Joseph expressed his elation at dismissing the renowned Australian batsman, sharing his admiration for Smith’s cricketing prowess:

“Getting Steve Smith is the biggest dream. I don’t think I have any better wicket. He is one of my favorite players; I really love Steve Smith, the way he plays and goes about his cricket. Getting him, I’ll remember it for the rest of my life. I’d love to get a picture and stick it in my house.”

Joseph, who earlier contributed a valuable 36 runs with the bat, not only dismissed Smith but also added another significant scalp to his tally by removing Marnus Labuschagne. His commendable performance made him the standout bowler for the West Indies on Day 1 of the Test.

The young pacer’s enthusiasm and reverence for his cricketing idol were evident in his words, underlining the significance of the moment for him. As Joseph continues to make his mark in international cricket, the memory of dismissing Steve Smith will undoubtedly hold a special place in his budding career.
