In the gripping second Test match between Australia and the West Indies in Brisbane, the fiery pace of Mitchell Starc brought about an unfortunate turn of events for the young West Indies pacer, Shamar Joseph. Joseph, who had made a promising debut in the previous Test match and even retired injured Usman Khawaja, faced a challenging moment when struck by a toe-crushing yorker from Starc.

Mitchell Starc’s delivery found its mark, hitting Joseph right at the top of his right toe. The impact was immediate, and Joseph winced in pain. Unable to stand or walk unassisted, he left the field in tears, highlighting the intensity of the blow. Cricket Australia shared a video capturing the incident, emphasizing the visible discomfort experienced by the West Indies pacer.

It was a moment that echoed a sense of concern, reminiscent of Joseph’s earlier impact in the first Test match, where his quick bouncer struck Usman Khawaja on the jaw, resulting in a bleeding injury. Although Khawaja recovered well to play the second Test, the West Indies faced another setback with Joseph’s injury.
