A highly touted talent, Alzarri Joseph is a rare breed capable of bowling quick from a very young age. He was instrumental in West Indies' title triumph in the 2016 Under-19 World Cup and was the leading wicket-taker for the Caribbean side. He also bowled the fastest delivery of the tournament and his dream continued as a lot of West Indies legend heaped praise on the young pacer.
Later that year, Joseph got his maiden Test call-up and his first wicket in international cricket was one to remember as he dismissed the modern-day great and future legend, Indian skipper, Virat Kohli. He later made his ODI debut against Pakistan at Sharjah. Though a young career, Joseph has had his fair share of injury concerns. He sustained a stress fracture in 2017 during the tour of New Zealand and had to sit out for 7 months. Alzarri came back from it and made an impact in the Caribbean Premier League. He was drafted into the side for the tour of India but was recommended to miss out for his rehabilitation.
Joseph continued his rehabilitation and his good work in the domestic circuit bore fruit. Injury to Adam Milne saw Alzarri Joseph get a chance in the Indian T20 League. He made an impact straightaway on his debut as he helped Mumbai defend a small total and he finished with one of the best bowling figures in the tournament with 3.4-1-12-6. His stint in India was cut short when he injured himself and had to miss out the rest of the tournament.
The same injury saw him miss out a seat on the flight to 2019 World Cup. With a bright future ahead, a lot of things are expected from Joseph. One of the major questions though is, will his body support him in the long run?
