Shiv’s son to make first class debut
GUYANA, Georgetown, Jan 23, CMC-Tagenarine Chanderpaul, son of dependable West Indies batsman Shivnarine Chanderpaul, is set to emulate his father by making his first-class debut as a teenager next month.
Tagenarine, 16, will open Guyana’s batting when they take on the Leeward islands in the regional four-day competition February 9 -12 at the Antigua Recreation Ground.
His father, currently the world’s second ranked test batsman, made his first class debut for Guyana at the age of 18.
The young Chanderpaul, described as being difficult to dislodge and capable of spending a lot of time at the wicket, is the lone new face in a 13 man Guyana squad announced for the four-day competition.
He joined a squad skippered by West Indies ‘A’ team and national CT20 captain Veerasammy Permaul who will also lead Guyana in the Super50 limited overs tournament.
Ricardo Adams and Rajiv Ivan are the new faces in the Super50 squad.
Notable absentees from both squads are Royston Crandon, Sewnarine Chattergoon, Richard Ramdeen, Chandrapaul Hemraj and Vishal Singh, who have all been placed on the standby list.
Guyana will also be without the services of Ramnaresh Sarwan and Narsingh Deonarine who will be away on West Indies duties in Australia.
Shiv Chanderpaul will also be absent having been given a No Objection Certificate to participate in the Bangladesh Premier League.
