Last year Caribbean Premier League (CPL) Shamar Jospesh played for Guyana Amazon. He played only two games for the team and has failed to take wickets for them. He has also made only two List-A appearances for Guyana in the Super50 Cup.

West Indies white ball coach Daren Sammy is convinced that Joseph will be an all-format great for his country and might easily be included in the T20 World Cup considerations.

“He will definitely be an all-format player,” Sammy remarked. “I can’t wait to get my hands on him on this team. But take a look: everything has a process. That is how I and the chairman of selectors function. What he’s done has given me a great difficulty, especially with the World Cup approaching and the ODI team moving forward.

“We have other players, including Jayden Seales, who is now injured. So we’re building a core in all forms that will allow us to select from strong places and performers, which is what you want as a cricketing nation.”

Shamar Joseph’s performance will motivate his young ODI side

Joseph is not included in the white-ball teams for the three-match ODI series, which begins on Friday at the MCG, and the three-match T20I series, which begins next Friday in Hobart.

Shamar Joseph was scheduled to play in the ILT20 before being forced to withdraw due to a toe injury sustained during the Gabba Test. Just after winning the second Test against Australia Shamar Joseph was signed as a replacement player by Peshawar Zalmi.

Sammy stated that there had been discussions about keeping him in Australia and adding him to the T20 teams, but he preferred to allow him to return home to heal and celebrate with family. Sammy hoped Joseph’s performance would motivate his young ODI side in the three-match series against Australia.
