Biography, Age, Nationality, Height,  Family, Net Worth – is a renowned  Guyanese cricketer, who made his international debut for the West Indies in January 2024, taking five wickets and becoming the best West Indian bowler in Australia.

 Shamar Joseph Biography

Born in Baracara, Guyana, Shamar Joseph is a talented Guyanese cricket player who has achieved success on the international front. Joseph's love for cricket blossomed as he grew up in a remote village with no access to contemporary conveniences. He was inspired by West Indies cricket greats Courtney Walsh and Curtly Ambrose.

Joseph's introduction to cricket began with tape ball games in Baracara, using fruits like lemons, limes, guavas, and peaches as makeshift cricket balls. His early emulation of Ambrose and Walsh set the foundation for his eventual career as a right-arm fast bowler. In a village that only received internet access in 2018, Joseph's cricketing journey initially took shape through unconventional means, labeled as “jungle-land cricket” in Baracara.

Raised in a family of three sisters and five brothers, Joseph's dedication to cricket faced initial challenges as he contributed to the logging industry alongside his siblings and father. A near miss with a falling tree prompted him to relocate to New Amsterdam, where he worked in construction and later as a security guard at Amalgamated Security Services in Scotiabank.

However, his burning passion for cricket led him to make a pivotal decision — leaving his security guard job to pursue cricket full-time with the support of his fiancée.

Romario Shepherd played a crucial role in Joseph's entry into professional cricket, introducing him to the Guyana cricket team. Under the guidance of Guyana head coach Esuan Crandon and encouragement from former cricketer Damion Vantull, Joseph made a significant impact in Division 1 cricket with debut figures of 6/13.

His impressive performance earned him a call-up to first-class cricket, marking a historic moment as the first test cricketer from Baracara.

Joseph made his first-class debut against Barbados in February 2023 and scored his first five-wicket haul against Windward Islands in the 2022–23 West Indies Championship. He played for the Guyana Amazon Warriors in the Caribbean Premier League and contributed significantly to their 2023 championship victory.

Joseph transitioned to List A cricket in the 2023–24 Super50 Cup and was named joint wicket-taker in the West Indies A side for the tour of South Africa. He made his international debut in January 2024 against Australia, taking five wickets and dismissing Steve Smith with his first delivery.

This made him the first West Indian bowler to achieve such success in Australia. Joseph continued to shine in subsequent matches, including a historic test victory against Australia after 27 years. Despite an injury to his toes, he displayed resilience and skill, earning admiration from fans and experts. His 13-wicket series performance earned him the player of the series award.

Shamar Joseph's inspiring journey from the remote village of Baracara to international cricket success reflects not only his cricketing prowess but also his determination to overcome challenges and pursue his passion. As a symbol of resilience and talent, Joseph has carved a significant place for himself in the world of cricket, capturing the hearts of fans and making a lasting impact on West Indies cricket history.
