Shivnarine Chanderpaul

It doesn’t matter whether the ball is pink, blue or white or whether it’s round, square or oblong. Shivnarine Chanderpaul will make runs. As he nears his 43rd birthday there is still life in those limbs; the twinkle in his eyes suggests that he sees the ball early. He has in his quiver arrows programmed to halt the trajectory of the turning ball.
