Shivnarine Chanderpaul

Shivnarine Chanderpaul is One of the most instantly recognisable Figures in the history of West Indies Cricket. With an unorthodox batting Technique, he made his debut at 19 and quickly began to excel against opposition Bowlers. Registering 13 half-Centuries before his maiden Test Century arrived, the “Floodgates” then opened and he became the Rock of the West Indies batting lineup over a 21-Years International Career. Resilience, control and an often impenetrable Defence characterised his batting Style, which was prolific enough to earn him 30 Test Centuries, and eventually become the Second West Indian to reach 10,000 Test Runs. Not limited to the longest format, Chanderpaul also excelled in ODIs, amassing 8,778 Runs in 268 Outings.

Headline statistics:

He made his international debut v England in March 1994
164 Test Matches, 11,867 Runs at an average of 51.37
Eighth on the List of all time Test Match Runs
Holds the Record of Seven half-Centuries in consecutive Test Innings
268 ODIs, 8,778 Runs at an average of 41.60

On the News of his induction, Chanderpaul commented: “It’s an amazing honour to follow the Footsteps of many Legends, and so many other great Cricketers of the past. I’m grateful for the recognition, and would like to enjoy the moment with Family, Friends and most importantly the West Indies Cricket Fans, and Fans around the World who passionately supported me throughout my Career.”
