Profile

The possessor of the crabbiest technique in world cricket, Shivnarine Chanderpaul proves there is life beyond the coaching handbook. He never seems to play in the V, or off the front foot, but uses soft hands, canny deflections, and a whiplash pull-shot to maintain a Test average of around 50. While the cricket world was obsessed with Brian Lara's unquestionable talent, Chanderpaul has shown that there are alternate ways to be consistent and prolific in Test cricket over a long period of time, becoming only the second West Indian to score 10,000 Test runs.

Timeline
    • March 17, 1994
      Test debut
      • Five months short of 20, Chanderpaul makes his international debut, as much for his legbreaks as his left-hand batting, against England in Georgetown, and scores a half-century.
    • April 16-20, 1994
      Matching steps with Lara
      • In his fourth Test, after hitting 77 the game before, Chanderpaul scores an unbeaten 75, matching Brian Lara at times to the point that in one period, while Lara scores 31 with four fours, Chanderpaul makes 28 with five. But then he settles down and plays a key role in partnering Lara to his first world Test record of 375.
    • October 17, 1994
      One-day debut
      • Plays his first ODI against India in Faridabad, but does not get to bat in West Indies' victory.
