Chanderpaul's son to make first-class debut

http://www.espncricinfo.com/westindies/content/story/601969.html?CMP=chrome

West Indies batsman Shivnarine Chanderpaul's son, Tagenarine, will make his first-class debut at the age of 16, for Guyana against Leeward Islands in the regional four-day competition in Antigua from February 9.

Tagenarine has been selected as an opener for Guyana, who are captained by spinner Veerasammy Permaul.

Tagenarine, like his father, is said to be a patient batsman, hard to dislodge and capable of spending a lot of time at the crease.

Shivnarine had also made his first-class debut for Guyana as a teenager, when he was 18. He is currently playing the Bangladesh Premier League and will be away during the course of his son's debut.

The competition has been dominated by Jamaica for the past five years. Guyana last won the title in the 1997-98 season.

The West Indies #5 position is in safe hands!
 
Almost read that as tangerine, future looks bright!
 
If Shiv hangs on for another 4-5 years they might play together!
 
That would be so cool if they could even play first class cricket together....

Unique feat (father & son scoring FC 100 in the same match) was achieved against Warwickshire at Birmingham in 1931. G Gunn scored 183 and GV Gunn 100*.
 
Good luck to Tagenarine Chanderpaul:19:!

This one isn't a first class match but it involves a legend and it's against Pakistan!

A big deal is made about great cricketers' sons who go on to play cricket and they are hyped up in the hope that they will be as good as their father's but I don't think it's ever been the case where a great cricketer's son has turned out to be as good as them.
 
i can see the headline coming in the next 1-2 years

chanderpauls create history as they become the 1st father-son duo to play test cricket together:D

ST. JOHN’S, Antigua – Tagenarine Chanderpaul came of age on Sunday, when he completed his maiden first-class hundred for newly-crowned champions Guyana Jaguars, but they had to settle for a draw with Barbados Pride in the Regional 4-Day Championship.

The left-handed opener, son of legendary WINDIES left-hander Shivnarine Chanderpaul, who is a member of the Jaguars line-up for this match and was watching from the confines of the dressing room, reached his landmark from 275 balls, when he swung Jonathan Carter to deep mid-wicket for the last of his nine boundaries.

He finished unbeaten on 101 and on reaching the landmark prompted Jaguars captain Leon Johnson to declare about 50 minutes before lunch on the final day of the ninth-round match to give his side a little more than two sessions to try for a victory – but they were hamstrung by a hard, true Kensington Oval pitch and steady Pride batting.
 
Would love for WI to find players that can help them succeed, but two words for people who think world class players have some gene they'll pass on to their kids.

Rohan Gavaskar.
 
His Dad was certainly a very good player if not a great. Good luck to the boy.
 
I remember them showing him in the nets 5 or 6 years back during a test match at Guyana. He had a similar stance to his dad. Wonder if he still bats like that. Would be amazing if so :))
