Unbelievable! T&T and Guyana Championship Match Suspended After Cows Damage Pitch Before Play

In cricket, there are several bizarre incidents which often go viral. Recently, a snake stopped Lanka Premier League game. In 2022, the Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati also saw similar incident during a match between India and South Africa. But what has reportedly happened in a cricket match between Trinadad and Tobago and Guyana in the Caribbean, is beyond imagination.

According to Caribbean Cricket Podcast, one of the day’s play in a match between Trinidad & Tobago and Guyana had to be abandoned as cows got on the pitch overnight and trampled part of the field. West Indies cricket is undefeated.

While the credibility of the news could not be verified, it sure sounds bizarre.

Talking about West Indies cricket, recently Injured pace bowler Shamar Joseph produced a stunning spell of fast bowling to lead his side to one of the greatest upsets in Test history, with the West Indies stunning Australia by eight runs in Brisbane.

The West Indies, who brought an under-strength side to Australia for the Test series, gave debuts to four players, including Joseph, in the two Tests.

They were beaten inside three days in Adelaide last week and were expected to suffer a similar fate in the day-night Test in Brisbane.

But after bowling the hosts out for 207 in the second session Sunday, the West Indies recorded their first win in Australia since they last tasted victory in Perth in 1997.

West Indies captain Kraigg Brathwaite struggled to contain his emotions after the match.

“It means everything, playing with the legend Brian Lara watching, playing in Australia, a place we haven’t won in a number of years,” he said.

“To come here with this young group, seven or eight uncapped players is nothing but amazing and special.

“For us to come and do it against the number one team in the world, here in Australia, is amazing.

“It shows that once we have the belief and the heart, we can do anything.”

Joseph was outstanding Sunday, bowling 11.5 overs of hostile pace to finish with 7-68 in just his second Test, despite the pain in his foot.

“Kraigg kept coming up and asking if I was alright, but I said I’m not coming off,” Joseph said.

“I said I wanted to do it for the team. I think this win is very important for us and it’s just the beginning for West Indies cricket.”
