Australia vs West Indies: The first match of the two-Test series is being played between Australia and West Indies. In this match, Australian captain Pat Cummins won the toss and decided to bowl first. After the end of the first day’s play, Australia has scored 59 runs at the loss of 2 wickets. But a star player who made his debut for West Indies has done a big miracle.

Took a wicket on the first ball of his career

Three players are debuting for West Indies in the first Test match against Australia. These include Kavem Hodge, Justin Greaves, fast bowler Shamar Joseph. Shamar Joseph dismissed star batsman Steve Smith on the very first ball of his Test career. After the retirement of David Warner, Steve Smith came to open, but he could not do wonders.

Became the second bowler to do so

Shamar Joseph has created history by taking the wicket of Steve Smith. He has become the second bowler for West Indies to take a wicket on the first ball of his Test career. Before him, Tyrrell Johnson had taken a wicket on the first ball of his Test career for West Indies in 1939. He is the 23rd bowler to take a wicket on the first ball of his Test career.

Only this batsman scored a half century for West Indies

Except Kirk McKenzie, no player could perform well for the West Indies team. McKenzie scored 50 runs. After this, the second highest score for the team was seen from Shamar Joseph, who came to bat at number 11, who scored 36 runs. On behalf of the Australian team, among the bowlers, Josh Hazlewood and captain Pat Cummins took 4-4 wickets. Apart from this, Mitchell Starc and Nathan Lyon also managed to take 1 wicket each.
