Chanderpaul’s unbeaten ‘double’ takes him past 800 runs
By Sean Devers
His illustrious father has already scored 9,063 Test runs with 22 centuries and is not finished as yet but if 14-year-old Tage ‘Brandon’ Chanderpaul continues to blossom at the rate he is going, Shivnarine’s recorded could be passed by his little left-handed son some day in the future.
While Test cricket is far away from his thoughts at present and a place in this year’s Guyana under-15 team for next month’s regional competition in Trinidad is his immediate goal, young Chanderpaul is continuing to pile up the big scores in the inaugural Georgetown Cricket Association (GCA) BrainStreet one-day limited overs under-15 competition.
Already with three consecutive centuries in the competition, Chanderpaul smashed a masterful unbeaten 200 for tournament leaders GYO against Transport at the GYO ground yesterday to go past 800 runs (806) from eight innings, including two not outs.
Chanderpaul, who hails from Unity Village on the East Coast of Demerara, stroked 28 fours and eight sixes before the allotted 55 overs for the team batting first ended his innings with his team on 314-7.
Such was Chanderpaul’s dominance that Danesh Persaud’s 23 was the next best score for GYO who had to settle for a draw as Transport reached 239-8 when the match ended.
Sunil Singh scored 51 while Andrew Chung made 38 in their half-century opening partnership to set the foundation for Keon Morris to blast an entertaining undefeated 108.
Damian Waldron had 3-37 and the versatile Chanderpaul, who bowls both left-arm and right arm spin, supported with 2-41 to keep GYO in the lead with one game left in the league stage of the competition.
At GNIC, Everest beat Saints Stanislaus College by 41 runs after they made 213 all out in 41 overs and dismissed Saints, who only had 10 players, for 172 off 37.5 overs.
