27

Bangladeshis 377 for 7 dec (Mushfiqur 106*, Nasir 100*) and 148 for 4 (Shamsur 46, Tamim 43) drew with St Kitts & Nevis 399 (Chanderpaul 183, Jeffers 118, Shuvagata 3-48, Rubel 3-90)
Scorecard

Shivnarine Chanderpaul's 183 thwarted the Bangladeshi bowlers and led St Kitts & Nevis to 399 on the final day of the drawn tour match at the Warner Park, Basseterre. The Bangladeshis played out 36 overs before close of play, scoring 148 for 4.

Chanderpaul and Jeremiah Louis, the overnight batsmen for St Kitts & Nevis, began the day with the score on 232 for 4 and they added another 88 runs to their partnership to take the score past 300. Despite Louis' wicket and quick subsequent strikes from Taijul Islam and Shuvagata Hom, St Kitts & Nevis steadied themselves and took a first-innings lead through a 35-run, ninth-wicket stand between Chanderpaul and Shino Berridge. Chanderpaul's hit 20 fours and two sixes before his dismissal by Rubel Hossain brought an end to the innings. For the Bangladeshis, Shuvagata, Taijul and Rubel all picked up three wickets each.

The Bangladeshi openers, Shamsur Rahman and Tamim Iqbal, gave their side a confident start in the second innings with a 94-run stand that came at a brisk run rate of 4.47. However, the Bangladeshis suffered a top-order stutter when their top three were dismissed within four overs. Both openers, who have been short of runs on the tour, got starts - Shamsur scored 46 off 63 balls while Tamim chipped in with a 65-ball 43.

    Shiv is the best. People comment on his selfishness but Why don't they comment on the poor batting display by The rest of the team?

    Bat make runs, if the team can't contribute why should the Tiger do it all? 20 years is long enough.

  • cricketdebator on September 7, 2014, 16:29 GMT

    @tutorial.. I do not have any bias against Shiv. Just that for all the runs he scores, his innings do not impact on the fortunes of WI team. He does not influence the out come of the few matches WI manage to win or draw. Do you understand what is a match defining inning? Example.. the double century scored by Darren Bravo in New Zealand last year which went a long way in saving the match for his team. I notice you have repeatedly ignored the question, so I must ask you again...how often, and when was the last time Chanders played such an inning for WI? Even if they wanted to, the selectors would not drop him out of mere respect, but at 40, one would expect him to do the honourable thing and retire, as Tendulkar, Dravid, Ponting and Kallis etc, have so gracefully done before him. But then again, we might very well see him retiring as soon as he eclipse Lara's record. Who knows?

  • tutorial on September 7, 2014, 15:01 GMT

    @cricketdebator, Selectors could drop Shiv at any point but,because of the man's value to the team and WI.cricket, they cannot and would not. Kirk Edwards should be dropped! What you're asking for will fast destroy WI.cricket. Present test WI.in a strong position because of Brathwaite,who's batting style was/is influence by Shiv. Blackwood LBW for10, come on man put the biases aside!!. MATCH DEFINING INNINGS!!. If any other top order batsman would or could keep their wicket then you will have match defining inning.The question should be: Why the rest of top order batsmen cannot hold on to their wickets and bat CONSISTENTLY?? E.G. KIRK EDWARDS!

  • cricketdebator on September 7, 2014, 9:15 GMT

    @ tutorial.. It is interest that you raised the question of Lara's test runs, since it is widely suspected that the desire to beat Lara's aggregate is really what keeps Chanderpaul going. And, you still has not answered my question of how often and when was the last time has he played an inning which could be considered the main factor in winning or saving a match for WI? Also, for you to suggest that Shiv provides sensibly batting is a joke. Look at the selfish way he bats with the tail. On many occasion, rather than taking control of the batting out in the middle (as the senior batsman is expected to do) he takes a single off the first ball of the over and leave his lesser skilled partner to survive. Inevitably his team loses the match, but the stats show another half century for Shiv "not out" Chanderpaul. Looking at it constructively, is that really beneficial to the WI cause? Wouldn't it make more sense to replace him at this time with young and talented Blackwood? Be honest.

    @cricketdebator, Match defining,power hitting,slugging are the main reasons WI.cricket is down the tubes. Sensible batting is required and Shiv provides that EVERY TIME, you should put your biases for the tiger aside and THANK the man, for he is the main reason WI is still allowed to play test cricket. Its utter nonsense when one don't acknowledge FACTS. What is it that you're so afraid of? Shiv exceeding Lara's test runs?.

  • SahilMisri on September 5, 2014, 22:02 GMT

    Chanderpaul is my favourite West Indian test cricketer at the moment. I admire him that he still plays so well at 40, and how he saves the West Indies from tight situations a lot of the time

  • cricketdebator on September 5, 2014, 20:53 GMT

    @rayinto...you are correct, the stats do not lie, in that they do not show Chanderpaul playing match defining innings for the WI team. Can you indicate how often and when was the last time Chanderpaul played an match winning or match saving inning for WI?

  • rayinto on September 4, 2014, 20:05 GMT

    Shiv is the best batsman in the West indies team - stats don't lie. The man is ageless - and yes - out performs everyone regardless of age. He is blocking no one and is the foundation on which we build.

  • on September 4, 2014, 18:32 GMT

    something else the cricketdebator, sniffleather and other proponents of Gibson-may want to know...WI cricket cannot and will not change with any coach, much-less 100 coaches. Why? THe cricketers coming to the national stage does not have the intellectual capacity, ducational qualifications to interpret complex cricket delimas. They doe not know why they shine the cricket ball, why the ball swings, how to extract the most out of a pitch that does not offer assistance to fast bowlers. They do not have the requisite cricket IQ to perform at the highest level, thus WI will forever exist at the bottom of the table.

  • on September 4, 2014, 14:01 GMT

    @ cricdebay-TARR. 1. Remember it was people like you, Holding, Djuon and a host of others who have been saying Shiv does not have the POWER like Gayle, Sammy, Bravo etc to REALLY HIT POWERFUL SHOTS, thus keep him out of the one day team. Now all of you will have to contend with Clive, because I am certain Clive will advocate for Shiv in the ODI team. 2. I appreciate your negative comments about Shiv's place in the WI team, as well as all his critics, because that is the MOTIVATING FACTOR for Shiv to keep playing. Too bad Gayle, Powell, Brathwaite, Edwards and all the powerful hitters are failing....

  • Shiv1994 on September 4, 2014, 4:55 GMT

    If Shiv is blocking a way for a young player, then let we know who that player is.? Age is not a factor or a reason for a player either to continue his play or not.? Its about the performance and as long as Shiv is performing he should play despite his age reaches 50 or more.

  • sheru-sher on September 3, 2014, 17:25 GMT

    To keep playing Shivnarine Chandrapaul in West Indies side is big joke.Reminds me of Close and Edrich being asked to play against West Indies when they were nearing age 50. If that is good then please bring back Brian Lara as I thought he was forced out West Indies side. God forbid , but if Chandrapaul is hit by a bouncer at that age then people will realize that playing Test cricket at age 40 is big risk. Chandrapaul should realise this himself and should stop chasing personal milestones.He is fixed at no. 5 in batting arder and never help the lesser lower arder batters.

  • netgrouchy on September 2, 2014, 23:51 GMT

    Cricketdebator obviously has chosen to disregard the Cricinfo STATS. Shiv's health at 40 is better than many cricketers half his age and certainly better than many in the current WI teams - test, ODIs and T20. His endurance and staying power help to steer the less experienced players. To call him selfish along with other derogatory comments is mean and unwarranted. His young and promising son will have his day but this is no time for Shiv to be hanging up his gear. He is not blocking anyone's path.... ALL our players have the same privileges but many squander them...... Play until your honed body and well disciplined mind tell you it is time..... The naysayers are just plain enviious. Shiv should be a part of WC 2015....

  • on September 2, 2014, 22:59 GMT

    @cricketdebator you can't be more wrong Shiv score Big runs VS better teams consistently.Look at his record over the last 7 years.You must not be a west Indian because you should know how many times Shiv have save us from humiliation........

  • on September 2, 2014, 22:57 GMT

    Shiv sets the standard for batting discipline...I am so proud of this Guyanese to excel at the latter part of his illustrious career...Shiv legacy would the Gold Standard of W.I cricket...I am pleasant please at the success he is having at 40....Shiv is blessed !!!!

  • satspeare on September 2, 2014, 21:22 GMT

    @ cricketdebator - I am just here that you must also feel that the ball-blasters deserve their selection in the team as much as Shiv don't!! when you find a name, please let the rest of us know who exactly is Shiv selection "blocking" and to suggest his is just a folly as your comment> Tagenarine is not quite ready for test cricket. please find a batsman with the appetite for runs and who has displayed an interest to work for them. but while you are at it , please forget anyone with a lower than 25 batting average at first class level - that is at least a non-sentimental yardstick! Shiv is NOT blocking anyone - there just isn't anyone knocking on the constantly revolving door! I think Shiv should for as long as he can be logically and suitably be replaced with anyone who "deserve" his place MORE than he certainly does. We are constantly struggling to take a match into the 5th day - without him, we'll probably have 3 day games. by the way - there isn't anything wrong with playing at 40

  • cricketdebator on September 2, 2014, 19:41 GMT

    Despite all what Chanderpaul has achieved in this match, and what his fans are saying, the fact remains he is 40 and his continuous playing on the West Indies team is blocking the way for a would be future batman (who could even be very well his young and promising son). Further more, it's all well and good for him to score big runs in a practice match against a weak and lowly Bangladeshi bowling attack (anybody can), but when playing for the West Indies against the top teams, he needs to play match defining innings to either win or draw matches for his team. His frequent little scores of 40 or 50 not out are insignificant, coming from the supposedly top batsman on the team. And to make matters worse, his batting style is so selfish, it does nothing to motivate or inspire confidence in the younger batsmen. Therefore his presence is a complete waste of time as far as the development of the West Indies team is concern. But he might merely be playing to bolster his statistics. Who Knows?

    Congrats Shiv. I am glad that you continue to prove to those who want to make excuses about age, that 40 is still a reasonable young age where you would continue to make runs, if you are a really great batsman. I hope the experts take very close note. I think that you and Misbah Ul-hac are proving to the world that if you can really bat, you can still ply your trade with consummate efficiency at age 40. Congrats once again Shiv. Play till you are fifty, because you can really bat.
