!The 'TIGER' Roars Perennially!

9:35 PM Posted In Edit This 2 Comments »

His team mates fondly call him 'the TIGER' for his inherent battling qualities and the cricketing experts have been long wondering how this run machine with the fussiest of techniques which contradicts any coaching manual, has never ceased to roar!

Hailing from Guyana this fragile looking bloke is better known for frustrating oppositions of the highest standards! Chanders is one of the few players to have gone 1000 minutes in Test cricket without conceding his wicket. He has done this three times, and is the only player to have done so more than once. Its natural for any opposition to cede watching someone occupy the crease for such immeasurably long periods!

This is the man to whom the team often looks to and he's been ceaselessly happy to bury himself at the crease to rescue his team out of peril.
With his colleagues failing far too frequently,
he often runs out of partners... but never has he frowned to wage a lone battle...

His stance and technique have long baffled his counterparts and here's the great McGrath citing his team's difficulties with Chanders:
"You're waiting for him to face up, and he already is... Warney wanted to go out to square leg and bowl to him from there. It obviously works for Shiv. He's a class player and the position he gets himself in to play the ball, there's no problem there. But it's a little off-putting running in to bowl at someone standing front-on with the bat behind their shoulder."

If your into the notion that this guy's fit only for tests gobbling up as many overs as possible, wait a minute.... hes capable of shifting gears at ease! His last ball six against Sri Lanka (precisely 10 runs of the last 2 balls) will remain etched in history... His small blitzkriegs at the final stages of the innings are testimony to his versatility! He has been the lynchpin of the team and has earned great respect for his inspirational performances!
Shiv kissing the pitch following each of his centuries is a sight to behold!

Standing tall amidst ruins, he lends spirits to the distant hopes of a Windies resurrection! Even the legendary commentator Tony Cozier quotes Chanders as "the most immovable object in the game at present"

Wat else proof do u want of the fighting abilities of the Tiger! Lying numb on the ground after a thunderbolt from lee... a few
moments later celebrating an inspirational century! Hats off Shiv... Nothing more could be asked of you!

No words can praise this fragile little man's perpetual services towards Windies cricket! Hope he continues to inspire!
