Like father, like son!

Tagenarine Chanderpaul, son of dependable West Indies batsman Shivnarine Chanderpaul, is set to emulate his father by making his first-class debut as a teenager next month.

Tagenarine, 16, will open Guyana’s batting when they take on the Leeward Islands in the regional four-day competition Feb 9-12 at the Antigua Recreation Ground.

His father, currently the world’s second-ranked Test batsman, made his first-class debut for Guyana at the age of 18.

The young Chanderpaul, described as being difficult to dislodge and capable of spending a lot of time at the wicket, is the lone new face in a 13-man Guyana squad announced for the four-day competition.

He joined a squad skippered by West Indies ‘A’ team and national CT20 captain Veerasammy Permaul who will also lead Guyana in the Super50 limited overs tournament.
