Shane Shillingford appeared on the domestic scene in 2000/01, but despite an impressive first-class record, he struggled to break into the Test side. After several years of toil, he finally came into his own during the A team's matches against England at home, and in Bangladesh in 2010. Having overcome the problems posed by a suspect action, he finally earned his maiden Test call the same year, for the first home Test against South Africa. He made an impression on the rain-affected Sri Lanka tour that followed, but his action was later deemed illegal. He underwent remedial work and worked his way back into the side for the Bangladesh tour in 2011. His first six Tests fetched him 18 wickets, but he took it up a few notches when he returned to the Test side in 2012, taking his first five-for and ten-wicket match haul, against Australia in Roseau.
He had an impressive series against Zimbabwe in March 2013, finishing with 19 wickets in two Tests, including another ten-wicket haul in Roseau. He was the highest wicket-taker for West Indies on the tour to India, with 11 wickets in two Tests, but was reported once again for a suspect action during the second Test in Mumbai.
He was suspended from bowling in international cricket for the second time in his career in December 2013, during West Indies' tour of New Zealand, with the ICC stating that the degree of elbow flex in his standard off-break and doosra deliveries exceeded the permitted 15 degrees. Shillingford underwent remedial work on his action and was cleared for an international return in March 2014. However, with his doosra still deemed illegal, he struggled in the first series after his return, taking five wickets in two Tests against New Zealand.
