Guyanese hopeful following in his father’s footsteps

BIG HITTER: Chanderpaul

THE SON of one West Indies’ greatest batsman is set to make his first-class debut for Guyana at the age of just 16.

Tagenarine Chanderpaul, whose father is the world-class Windies player Shivnarine, will open against Leeward Islands in the regional four-day competition in Antigua starting on February 9.

The 38-year-old Shivnarine – who has made 146 Test appearances for the Windies – made his debut for the South American country as an 18-year-old 20 years ago.

ESPNcricinfo described Tagenarine as “a patient batsman, hard to dislodge and capable of spending a lot of time at the crease.”

Guyana last won the competition in the 1997-89 season.
