Shamar Joseph: Shamar Joseph’s IPL debut: A 10-ball over, 22 runs, and KL Rahul’s advice | Cricket News


NEW DELHI: West Indies speedster Shamar Joseph unleashed some thunderbolts clocking around 150kmph in his maiden IPL appearance for Lucknow Super Giants against Kolkata Knight Riders. However, he found himself at the receiving end of a battering from the KKR lineup.
Joseph, who grabbed headlines earlier when he clinched seven wickets, despite nursing a toe injury, during West Indies’ historic Test victory on Australian soil after 27 years in January this year, was playing his maiden IPL match for LSG against KKR.

Impressed by his sheer pace and remarkable bowling display during the series against Australia, Lucknow Super Giants signed Joseph as the replacement for Mark Wood for the IPL 2024 season, offering him a hefty Rs 3 crore deal under the leadership of KL Rahul.

After LSG posted a competitive total of 161/7, KL Rahul handed Joseph the ball to spearhead the attack.

Unfortunately, Joseph’s debut over in the IPL didn’t pan out as he hoped.
0 L1 4 2 B1 N Wd Wd5 N 6 – that’s the summary of Joseph’s opening over in his maiden IPL outing, where he conceded 22 runs.
Witnessing his bowler leaking runs in the initial over, skipper KL Rahul hurried to offer some words of advice to Joseph.
