International cricket witnesses some batsmen struggling on certain pitches. For instance, players like VVS Laxman, Cheteshwar Pujara, and Virat Kohli have faced difficulties while playing in Australia. Similarly, Steve Smith has troubled some bowlers from England and India. Shivanarayan Chandrapaul, the former captain of the West Indies, has also played in a similar manner. This particular style of play by the Indian batsmen poses a challenge for the bowlers of the opposing team. Now, Shivanarayan’s son, Tagenerine Chandrapaul, is making his mark as a bowler for the West Indies team.

As part of the West Indies’ tour, the Indian team will engage in a Test series starting from July 12, accompanied by warm hospitality. The West Indies Cricket Board has selected 18 players for practice camps before this event. Among them, Tagenerine Chandrapaul stands out with his impressive skills. In his short career, he has already played six Tests for the West Indies, scoring 207 runs and taking a total of 453 wickets. He has an impressive batting average of 45.30, including a notable half-century. He has inherited the ability to perform consistently from his father, who was known for his long-lasting contributions in cricket.
However, when observing this young player’s performance, it appears that he might enter the actual playing eleven from the practice camp. He has more opportunities for his place in the team. Shivanarayan Chandrapaul has played a total of 25 Tests for the West Indies, scoring 2171 runs at an average of 63.85, including 7 centuries and 10 half-centuries. Additionally, he has played against India, scoring 1319 runs in 46 matches, with an average of 35.64. He also has 2 centuries and 10 half-centuries to his name. These achievements indicate that the son is following in his father’s footsteps and making a name for himself in the Indian team.
