Bravo: Shiv is a great help

ROSEAU, Dominica -- Shivnarine Chanderpaul followed Brian Lara in becoming the second West Indies batsman to reach 10,000 test runs on Thursday. Playing in a record 140th Test match, Chanderpaul chipped a ball into the onside to reach the milestone and the moment was met with massive applause from the supportive crowd at Windsor Park.

After the fourth day’s play in the ongoing third Digicel Test, Darren Bravo saluted Chanderpaul and said he is the example to follow for the new generation of cricketers in the Caribbean.

10,000 runs is special says Super Shiv

ROSEAU, Dominica – Shivnarine Chanderpaul became the second West Indies batsman and just the 10th in the history of Test cricket to reach 10,000 runs on Thursday. The ever-reliable left-hander made a typically impressive back-to-the-wall 69, as West Indies fought hard to stay alive in the third Digicel Test against Australia at Windsor Park.

Veteran Chanderpaul, in his 140th Test, reached the landmark before tea, when he clipped a delivery from Australia captain Michael Clarke to mid-wicket for a single, moving his career above the 50-run mark.

Shiv falls leaving WI chase shaky

ROSEAU, Dominica – Shivnarine Chanderpaul fell in the final over of another compelling day, after he claimed another personal milestone and shared a century partnership with Darren Bravo, taking the sting out of West Indies’ pursuit of 370 for a series-levelling victory in the third and final Digicel Test against Australia on Thursday.
