Alzarri Joseph played for Joburg Super Kings in this year’s SAT20 league. However, the team did not get his services until the end of the tournament. This pacer of the West Indies left the team in the middle of the tournament. Alzarri has to go to the South African franchise, the T20 league, mainly to play for the national team. Joburg Super Kings have already taken his alternatives.
The West Indies team is scheduled to tour Zimbabwe this month. Where they will face each other in a two-match Test series. And Alzarri has to go with the team on the trip. Because this pacer is a star who has already promised to play for the national team, that is why Alzarri hastily left Juburg and returned to his country to join the national team. Matthew Wade will play in his place.
The signing of Wade as Alzarri’s replacement has been confirmed by the Joburg franchise. However, a question remains here, instead of a professional bowler, why did the team take a professional wicketkeeper-batsman? However, Joburg did not feel the need to give any explanation in response to such questions from journalists. Meanwhile, 35-year-old Australian batsman Wade has already joined the team.
Joburg may suffer as Alzarri leaves. However, looking at the performance of this Caribbean pacer, it is clear that he could have bowled better in the SAT20 league. He played 7 matches in Joburg jersey. Where bagged only 4 wickets. His team, however, is not in a good position. Their position in the points table is also quite shaky.
It is to be noted that after the first round of the SAT20 league, the top four teams will reach the tournament playoffs. However, since Joburg is owned by the Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League (IPL), it remains to be seen whether the fortunes will change. With Faf du Plessis in the form of the team, there is a glimmer of hope.
