“Congratulations. He’s an exceptional player and can hit the ball a long way. So let’s continue good work and enjoy every moment,” Joseph added.

A bond like no other

It was through Romario Shepherd’s guidance that Joseph ventured into cricket. Shepherd paved the way for Joseph’s entry into the Guyana cricket team, where he crossed paths with Esuan Crandon, the head coach, and bonded with senior Guyanese players, including the then-team captain, Leon Johnson.
