By 03 FEB 24

Shamar Joseph, the hero for the West Indies right now, has created history at Gabba by registering a win after 27 years.

He has grabbed attention due to his brilliant performance in the test series. Now let's see his life story, which you don't know about.

Shamar was born in Baracara, Guyana. He used to work as a logger and didn't get enough money to run his family, so he decided to go to Amsterdam.

He started working as a security guard over there, and he continued his passion for cricket by playing on weekends.

He used melted plastic bottles as a ball to train for bowling. He continued his training even though his situation was tough.

Curtly Ambrose and Courtney Walsh noticed his tape ball performance and helped him train along with the Guyanese national team.

He met Romario Shepherd over there, and soon, due to his brilliant performances, he started playing first-class cricket.

After that, there was no one stopping him, so he continued his cricket journey and became a hero at the Gabba for the West Indies team.
