By Sabyasachi Chowdhury: Fast bowler Alzarri Joseph, on Friday, December 9, became the leading wicket-taker in international cricket in 2022. The speedster achieved the feat during the second Test between West Indies and Australia at the Adelaide Oval.

Before the Day Night Test in Adelaide, Joseph had 65 wickets to his name in 33 matches. At the close of play on Day 1, the pacer equalled Nepal leg-spinner Sandeep Lamichhane, who has 66 wickets to his name from 32 matches in 2022.

Joseph went to the top after he castled right-handed batter Cameron Green on Day 2. The Aussie batter perished after scoring nine runs off 42 balls as Australia lost their sixth wicket in the 123rd over with 452 runs on the board.

In 17 ODIs in 2022, Joseph has picked up 27 wickets at an economy rate of 4.61. The seamer didn’t quite have a great time in the first Test at Perth Stadium. Although he scored 43 useful runs in the fourth innings, he failed to pick up a single wicket.

West Indies ended up losing the match by 164 runs and fell 0-1 down in the series. However, Joseph has been able to make amends in the second Test with his fiery pace.

Joseph made his debut back in 2016 and has been an effective part of West Indies’ bowling unit, especially in Tests and ODIs.

In 10 T20Is for the Caribbean team, Joseph has picked up 16 wickets at an economy rate of 7.47 with one four-wicket haul to show for his efforts.
