Thumbs up **Farewell Shivnarine Chanderpaul**

The reason for this thread is to celebrate the career of the Tiger from Guyana. To bid him farewell from the international stage...

PS: the other Chanderpaul thread's title was too negative for my liking...

Here is a nicely written article...somewhat nostalgic:

"The attempt mattered, you understand. There was nothing frivolous about Chanderpaul’s batting. He understood the value of time served, the importance of patience, the necessity of endurance. For years, he held up an end and, by doing so, quietly rebuked his team-mates. Test cricket is a serious business and Shiv Chanderpaul played it seriously. He was an Eeyore in a team of Tiggers.

But, outwardly at least, there never seemed to be any complaining. This was just the way it was and if his team-mates up the order had landed the West Indies in another fine mess it was Chanderpaul’s job to rescue them. Here we go again. This must, you think, have been wearisome and even, often, infuriating. Lesser men might have jacked it in.

There’s a risk here of making Chanderpaul seem too saintly. A danger of allowing it to be seen that he bore the sins of his team-mates with greater stoicism than they deserved. And yet wasn’t that in fact the case? The West Indies now risk something worse than even pity: scorn. No-one who saw anything of their recent capitulation in Australia can welcome the prospect of seeing this rabble again any time soon.

Sometimes it seemed, as a friend put it, that Life is what happens to you while watching Chanderpaul bat. He went on and on and on. Entire years seemed to pass in which he was almost impossible to dismiss. 2008 saw Chanderpaul in excelsis. 16 innings, seven not outs, 909 runs at an average of 101. In a three test series against the Australians that year, he batted for 26 hours. "

Some interesting facts about him that's lesser known:

"Although known for his doggedness, Chanderpaul has the record for the 4th fastest Test century. He smashed a ton in just 67 balls against the visiting Australians in 2002. He also starred in West Indies' record chase of 418 over Australia in Antigua, scoring 104 runs. He was named the captain of the team to face the visiting South Africans in 2005 and celebrated it by becoming only the second player to make a double century on debut as a Test captain, scoring an unbeaten 200 in Guyana.

Dont think he was too popular with the head groundsman for always digging holes in the ground when he came into bat

Maybe he might enjoy a few buss up shut now

He was the first to have started the habit of marking his guard with the bail...others followed afterwards...

Because of the nature of the pitches in Guyana..where they are rock hard, it was logical to marking guard in this fashion...

Finished his career in the test format as the 2nd leading run scorer for the West Indies, just 86 runs shy of Brian Charles Lara's record of 11,953 runs.

Played the most Tests for West Indies- 164

Sangakkara was probably the orthodox version of Shiv Chanderpaul...

shiv's form was going downhill but it wasnt that bad to throw him from the WI team, specially when the WI team's replcements for shiv was as **** as our 2000 to 2003 test batters, that gives the burning question for me did WI drop shiv to save lara's record? as Lara the record holder for WI has more draw than Shiv

A great player born in a wrong country! He should have born in Bangladesh!!


I did NOT like how WICB treated him.

World cricket will miss him. A great player and a person.

nooo.. Why bro? He's the best that our country has produced. I'm proud to be a Guyanese because of him....

I wish that the Tigers have a player of his calibre soon...

Chanderpaul's nickname is Tiger....A name that was given to him by the manager and coach of the Guyanese team in the early part of his career, he was a really good fielder and a googly bowler.

Lol, none of the batsmen in the current WI team, bar Darren Bravo, can hold a bat compared to Shiv.

And a gentleman. After his last tour hair, he took our Test batters aside and talked to them about how to pace a Test innings.
