    West Indies ended a 27-year-old drought on Australian soil

    West Indies registered thrilling 8-run victory over Australia in Gabba

    Shamar Joseph was adjudged man of the match

West Indies ended a 27-year-old drought of no test victory on Australian soil with a thrilling 8-run victory over Australia in the Brisbane Cricket Stadium which is considered a fortress for Australia in test cricket. 

The highlight of the day was the incredible story of Shamar Joseph who was playing his debut series. Earlier on 27th January, Shamar Joseph was struggling to even walk after a toe crushing yorker from Mitchell Starc had rendered him injured. He was however determined to help West Indies get over the line. He picked up 7 wickets in the second innings and was adjudged man of the match. “I just want to shout out to my teammates for their encouragement. I want to keep pushing through the pain for my team and the people of the Caribbean. The doctor called me this morning and he asked how I’m feeling and I said I was in a lot of pain. He told me to come to the ground and he believed I could do it. When I took my five-for it was tears of joy and happiness,” Shamar said in the post match presentation. 

Prior to this game, West Indies had last recorded a win against Australia in Australia in February 1997 in Perth. They had last won in Gabba in 1988. Curtly Ambrose was the man of the match on both occasions.
