Carl Hooper breaks down in the commentary box after West Indies’ historic win

Rising pace star Shamar Joseph miraculously took a 7-wicket haul to script a historic comeback for West Indies as the visitors breached ‘The Gabba’ fortress after 27 long years in what turned out to be an absolute humdinger. While cruising through towards the 216-run target at one stage with scores reading 113/2 on the board, the hosts were looking all set to clinch the series as well as a possible whitewash (2-0) over the visiting side on Sunday.

However, pacer Jospeh playing only in his second Test of his thrilling career so far, had other plans for his side even after sustaining a toe-crushing injury on day 3 after Starc bowled an absolute lethal yorker. But this did not stop Shamar Joseph from sparking a wicket riot (7/68) thereby getting his name etched in the history books at the iconic ‘Gabba’. The youngster went on to pick another six wickets on Sunday during his surreal bowling spell of 10 overs.

Following the historic win, former West Indies captain Carl Hooper failed to keep up with their emotions and started shedding ‘tears of joy’ in the commentary box. In the viral video, Hooper can be seen having his hands on his head and bursting into tears.
