HEADLINE: Chanderpaul hails JCA for recognising invaluable contribution to cricket

Former West Indies batting star Shivnarine Chanderpaul expressed gratitude to the Jamaica Cricket Association (JCA) for recognising his invaluable contribution to the game globally during a polished career spanning over two decades.

The Guyanese player was awarded a plaque bearing his image by JCA’s president Wilford “Billy” Heaven following the Jaguars seven-wicket win over Jamaica Scorpions in the Digicel Regional Four-day competition at Sabina Park on Monday.

Known for his unorthodox stance, the left-handed batsman, who has played some 164 Test matches for the West Indies — 14 of which he led as captain — retired from international cricket last year as one of the region’s finest players at the age of 41.

Now 42, Chanderpaul has scored over 20,000 runs in international cricket during his decorated career, with his 11,867 runs rating him as the second-highest West Indian scorer and seventh highest in the Test format. He was a mere 86 runs shy of Brian Lara’s 11,953.

Great move by JCA and well deserved Shiv
would another territorial board give such an honour to Gayle?
I doubt it

Has JCA similarly honoured Lara?

Lara did not appear in any T&T domestic matches played in Jamaica after he retired from test cricket ....

So that is what the award was for?

Yet the article said thusly
Jamaica Cricket Association (JCA) for recognising his invaluable contribution to the game globally during a polished career spanning over two decades.


Keep spinnin

With the risk of being branded a "BIG EDIOT" Cameron apologist, I feel compelled to remind you that the BIG IDIOT expressed his desire to have Shiv playing for another series, a series which would suffice as his farewell tour, but was overruled by the selectors then chaired by the Big Pu$$y.

Lots of us were quick then to label the BIG IDIOT's expressed desire as tantamount to team selection interference.

Just a reminder, folks.

No the award was for exactly what they intended. ... they were just awaiting the opportune time. They didn't want to send it by FedEx or via Skype....

Well done, J'ca!
