Guyana and West Indies star player Shivnarine Chanderpaul crowned a memorable weekend by smashing a century against England last Sunday, at the Guyana National Stadium.
Speaking at the press briefing after the match, the ICC 2008 Test Cricketer of the Year, Cacique Crown of Honour recipient and who recently got a street renamed in his honour, said that he was extremely happy to reach three figures in front of his home crowd.
“It is very special to me, especially since it occurred in front of my home fans and West Indies won,” the left-handed maestro said.
Chanderpaul also stated that the win has boosted the confidence of the team as they head to Kensington, Barbados for back-to-back matches which start this Friday.
Meanwhile, the Guyana Cricket Board and Developer Fazil Ramzan of Umana Developments of Sara Johanna Gardens and Friendship Mews ‘Gated Communities’ presented Chanderpaul with a gold plated Plaque and a certificate of one (1) house lot situated at Friendship Mews, East Bank Demerara respectively.
The West Indian middle-order batsman was given the gifts for his achievements in cricket and for his dedication and commitment to Guyana and West Indies cricket.
