’12 yorkers’: CSK legend Dwayne Bravo’s golden advice for LSG’s young Shamar Joseph

Ahead of the game, CSK bowling coach Dwayne Bravo caught up with pace sensation Shamar Joseph and offered him a golden piece of advice

Fiery West Indies pacer Shamar Joseph hasn’t managed to make quite the impact that one would have expected from him. He is likely to play against Chennai Super Kings – LSG’s next opponents – on Friday. Ahead of the game, CSK bowling coach Dwayne Bravo caught up with the pace sensation and offered him a golden piece of advice – ‘don’t finish a training session without bowling 12 yorkers’.

Bravo’s advice for Shamar Joseph

Shamar in shambles in his first IPL over

The quick bowler made his IPL debut in the KKR vs LSG match. Defending 162, the West Indian pacer was handed the new ball. Everyone had high hopes for the star. But Shamar failed to live up to expectations. He gave up 22 runs in his first-ever over.

Shamar Joseph had clocked 150 kmph during the over but bowled 10 instead of 6 balls, giving away 10 extras (2 no balls, 6 wides, 1 bye, and 1 leg bye). A disastrous start, to say the least. This isn’t the first time a player has failed to handle the IPL pressure, with Kwena Maphaka being the other pacer who failed to live up to the mark just a few days ago in IPL 2024.
