The meaning of «alzarri joseph»

Alzarri Shaheim Joseph (born 20 November 1996) is an Antiguan cricketer who plays for the West Indies in Tests and ODIs. He plays for Leeward Islands and the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in West Indian domestic cricket. He is a right-arm fast bowler who was selected by the Mumbai Indians franchise as a replacement for Adam Milne for the 2019 Indian Premier League (IPL) season.[1]

A West Indies under-19s player,[2] Joseph made his first-class debut for the Leewards during the 2014–15 Regional Four Day Competition.[3] Against Guyana during the following season, he took a maiden first-class five-wicket haul, 5/99 opening the bowling with Gavin Tonge.[4] The following match, against the Windward Islands, he took another five-wicket haul, 7/46.[5]

In December 2015, Joseph was named in the West Indies squad for the 2016 Under-19 World Cup.[6] At the tournament, he took 13 wickets from six matches to finish as his team's leading wicket-taker (and equal third overall).[7] His best performance was 4/30 against Zimbabwe, which saw him named man of the match.[8]

In October 2019, he was named in the Leeward Islands' squad for the 2019–20 Regional Super50 tournament.[9]

In July 2016 he was added to the West Indies Test squad for their series against India.[10] He made his Test debut on 9 August 2016 in the third match of the series.[11] He made his One Day International (ODI) debut for the West Indies against Pakistan on 2 October 2016.[12]

In October 2018, Cricket West Indies (CWI) awarded him a contract across all formats of cricket for the 2018–19 season.[13][14]

He received plaudits when, during the 2nd Test match against England in early 2019, Joseph carried on playing, in spite of the news after the 2nd day's play that his mother had died.[15]

In June 2020, Joseph was named in the West Indies' Test squad, for their series against England.[16] The Test series was originally scheduled to start in May 2020, but was moved back to July 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[17]

Joseph scored his maiden Test fifty on 5 December 2020,[18] scoring 86 runs in the second innings of a big loss against New Zealand.[19]

In March 2019, Joseph was selected for the Mumbai Indians as a replacement for Adam Milne in the Indian Premier League (IPL).[20] On 6 April 2019, he made his IPL debut against the Sunrisers Hyderabad and took the figures of 6/12, the best bowling figures for a debutant, beating Andrew Tye's 5/17 in 2017. These were also the best bowling figures in the IPL, breaking the eleven-year-old record held by Sohail Tanvir (6/14) and the second best T20 bowling figures after Deepak Chahar (6/7).[21][22] He also became only the second player to take a five-wicket haul on IPL debut, after Andrew Tye.[23]
