Joseph, who had problems walking the previous evening because of Mitchell Starc’s toe-brushing yorker, bowled a brilliant 12 overs from the Vulture Street End. 3162 Brisbane viewers watched this outstanding performance. After having scans the night before, Joseph, a Guyanese star, was allowed to play on Sunday.

Australia lost even after Steve Smith’s undefeated 91. With 156 runs to win, the West Indies needed eight wickets. Smith and all-rounder Cameron Green put up a fight, scoring 71 runs together, but Joseph’s skill instantly turned the situation.

Green, who played some beautiful strokes, became Joseph’s first victim, cutting back onto his stumps for 42. Joseph then delivered a dangerous yorker to remove Travis Head for a golden duck, joining to the unfortunate list of Test players who have a king pair.

Joseph continued to make a statement by turning down Mitchell Marsh and Alex Carey in a matter of minutes. Despite Mitchell Starc’s fight back, Joseph claimed five wickets, leaving Australia in danger at 6-136.

Joseph’s speed and approach were on full show as he bowled Pat Cummins to win his six-wicket haul. With only two wickets needed, the West Indies entered the final session with confidence.

The drama continued as vice-captain Alzarri Joseph missed a difficult catch off Nathan Lyon’s bat. Lyon, on the other hand, wasn’t successful on the occasion, leaving for nine. Smith, making the strike, showed his ability with a ramp shot for six, moving the target closer.

The critical moment came in the 51st over, when Shamar Joseph overturned Josh Hazlewood’s stumps, winning success and sparking celebration among the West Indies players. The two-match series finished in a 1-1 tie, and Australia kept the Frank Worrell Trophy.
