In rural Guyana, palm trees mingle homogeneously with wooden houses on stilts and open green fields. The idyllic countryside beckons, enticing us to delve deeper as village after village is overtaken by the whizzing automobile on the highway going east from Georgetown to New Amsterdam.

As another crisp drive from 12-year-old Brandon Chanderpaul spills out of the nylon net and rolls on the cemented front porch towards his grandfather Khemraj, a toothless smile dawns on the sun-beaten wrinkly face. The famous name that connects the two on the family tree isn't present at the in-house net session. You see him on television, fighting a losing battle against the New Zealanders in a World Cup game.

Shivnarine Chanderpaul - Digicel Cricketer No. 40
from Guyana Chronicle, 12 Jan 2011

Shiv Chanderpaul is a dependable and durable left-handed middle-order batsman who has so far proudly represented the West Indies in 129 Test matches and 261 One Day Internationals in a distinguished career which commenced in 1994. His early years were spent training under the guidance of his father and other close relatives and soon he was turning out for the East Coast Police, then the Everest and Demerara Cricket Clubs before he finally settled at the world-famous Georgetown Cricket Club.

The Captain of the West Indies cricket team is arguably the most powerful person in the Caribbean. He plays a key role in the fortunes of the game and the blood pressure levels of cricket fans in this cricket-mad region. Nothing unites the West Indian people like cricket.

Living and Making History with Shiv Chanderpaul
by Colin Croft, 13 Jul 2011

You would think that I am mad, but I am very sure that I knew Shivnarine “Tiger” Chanderpaul long before he was born. I knew of him perhaps before his father thought of him!

I believe that we should all be very pleased to be alive to celebrate Shiv’s record-breaking achievement.

Shivnarine Chanderpaul provides a notable counterpoint to the contemporary game. At once he is inimitable and timeless - no more a product of his period than a kitchen clock, and yet not a creature of the past either, for he has scored runs yesterday and today and will score runs tomorrow. Just that he goes about it in his own sweet and deceptively frail way, relying on deflections and glides, hands as opposed to forearms, a wand as opposed to a tree trunk, persuasion and perseverance as opposed to power. He is a rubber man put among concrete pillars. In short, he is a reminder that, even now, cricket has many faces and talent can take many forms.

Shivnarine Chanderpaul rarely gives interviews. It is remarkable that the ICC Cricketer of the Year and one of the best batsmen this decade has so little written about him. "I don't like to chat," he says with a shrug, his features retreating further under the peak of his cap. There is a pause. The dogged batsman who loves to stand at the crease and bat for hours is equally good at waiting out a silence.

The most remarkable delivery I ever witnessed at first hand from Shane Warne came not at Old Trafford in 1994 – a stock Warne leg-break to Mike Gatting in which, if we are honest, context was everything – but on the stroke of lunch on the final day of the Sydney Test against West Indies in 1996.

THE presence of West Indies captain Shivnarine Chanderpaul in Australia always sparks animated conversation along two lines. First, what the hell is going on with that splay-legged, front-on stance, in which he bears a remarkable resemblance to a crab?

The year 2008 was special for Chandepaul, when he was named the International Cricket Council’s Cricketer of the Year, winning the Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy. He was also named Wisden Cricketer of the Year in 2008. In July 2008 President Jagdeo of Guyana appointed Chanderpaul as a member of the Order of Service of Guyana and awarded him the Golden Arrow of Achievement. This was for “his consistently outstanding performance as a cricketer, especially as a batsman, at the national, regional and international levels.”
