Tagenarine Chanderpaul aims to emulate his dad

There’s a new Chanderpaul on the West Indies roster, and he shows as much potential as his legendary father at the same career stage.

Cricket West Indies announced a 15-man squad for their team’s two-match Test series against the hosts Australia, scheduled for the next few weeks.

Left-handed batsman Tagenarine Chanderpaul has received a maiden call-up after phenomenal performances in domestic cricket. Son of Windies veteran Shivnarine, Tagenarine has clubbed 2,669 first-class runs at an average of 34.21 with five hundreds. The 26-year-old Guyanese made his first-class debut in 2013 and made steady progress since.

Meanwhile, all-rounder Roston Chase and middle-order batter Shamarh Brooks have been recalled to the Test squad.

Chief selector Desmond Haynes said: “We have a core group of players who have been part of the Test squad and have performed well. We have played two series this year – against England and Bangladesh – and won both. We have been playing good Test cricket and expect to do well against the Australians on their home turf.

“We have one newcomer to the team in Tagenarine Chanderpaul. He equipped himself very well in the West Indies Championship four-day matches and also did a very good job at the top of the order against Bangladesh A in Saint Lucia this summer. He has what it takes to do well at the highest level.”
