Shamar Joseph Story:

A 24-Year old young boy belongs to a small village of Baracara in Guyana. Village has a total population of 400 people surrounded by water and the nearest city is 2 hours away by boat. There are no proper cricketing facilities in the town. 

He is from a poor family where he was not allowed to play cricket but as he grew up he went to city New Amsterdam for work and was working a 12-hours long shift as a security guard. Eventually his love for cricket forced him to leave the job and focus on his cricketing career and now just 1 year before a boy who was waiting to play his 1st first-class game has now been an integral part of the West Indies team bowling squad.
