No Chanderpaul in Windies first class draft
There is no sign of recently discarded Test batsman Shiv Chanderpaul among the 90 players entered for the draft of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) Professional Cricket League (PCL), which is the first class competition in te Caribbean.
Chanderpaul is conspicuously missing from Guyana Jaguars list of draft nominees. The veteran left-hander was controversially axed from the West Indies Test squad for the recent Australia tour, a move that is likely to end his career, reports CMC.
The 40-year-old averages 51 from 164 Tests and is just 88 runs shy of overtaking Brian Lara as the all-time leading run-scorer in West Indies cricket. He has scored 11,867 runs. Chanderpaul, however, can still play for Guyana at the discretion of the franchise on Pay-For-Play contract.
His son Tagenarine Chanderpaul, a left-handed <g data-gr-id="13">top order</g> batsman, is among the list of draft nominees for the defending champions.
