History/Victory will creat it’s self to day:England vs West indies…….

He is only 24, has endured a tough life growing up and is currently raising two toddlers with a young partner.

One can’t possibly blame Shamar Joseph for wanting the best of both worlds — “play all three formats for the West Indies” and also remain fit enough to ply his trade across the globe in franchise cricket.

Joseph has logged woods in the nondescript Guyanese village of Baracara, worked as a construction labourer at building sites before spending half a day as a security guard, a secure future for his family is all that he desires.

So, like a lot of West Indies players, who crisscross the globe playing IPL one day and Big Bash the next, Joseph too wants the best of both worlds.

“Look I haven’t made up my mind (if preference given),” the pace sensation, who has come in as a replacement for England pacer Mark Wood in Lucknow Super Giants team, told PTI.

The hero of West Indies’ recent Test win in Australia, who played through pain with a broken toe, feels that in the next few years, it his fitness will determine the workload he can take.

“I will like to play around the world to enhance my skills but if there are other opportunities (T20 Leagues), I will make myself available,” Joseph said, adding, “..and I have confidence in my fitness and that won’t be a problem for me.”

“Definitely my fitness will be important since I have a long career ahead of mine, I would definitely like to play all three formats for the West Indies whenever I am available. I will definitely make that time for them,” said the youngster.

He has played only two T20 matches for Guyana Amazon Warriors in his short and eventful career so far but IPL will give him an opportunity to learn the tricks of the trade.
