S. Chanderpaul 128* v EnglandBack to boards

Shivnarine Chanderpaul made the Honours Boards, when he scored 128* during West Indies defeat to England in 2004.

After England had posted a mammoth total of 568 in the first innings, West Indies’ task of victory or even a draw seemed even more slim when they lost their opening four batsmen with only 139 on the scoreboard.

Despite England’s efforts with the ball, they had no answer to Chanderpaul. His resilience proved useful for West Indies as they finished their first innings total with a respectable score of 416.

Chanderpaul’s knock saw him face 270 balls, hitting 15 fours in the process whilst remaining unbeaten.

However, Chanderpaul would be let down by his team-mates once again in the second innings, where he hit an unbeaten 97, which wasn’t enough as Ashley Giles took a five-wicket haul to secure victory for England by 210 runs.
