Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo joins Guyanese across the world in extending heartiest congratulations to one of our most outstanding batsmen, legendary Guyanese cricketer and former captain of the West Indies cricket team, Shivnarine Chanderpaul.
Chanderpaul was recently bestowed with the Honorary Doctor of Laws by the University of the West Indies for his achievements in cricket.
The 43-year-old, for more than 21 years, mesmerised cricketing fans across the world with his batting prowess. Currently, he is one of the Cricket West Indies (CWI) Ambassadors for the ICC Women’s World T20 tournament – to be played in the West Indies from November 9 to 24.
PM Nagamootoo and Chanderpaul have enjoyed a long personal friendship, since his days playing with Mahendra and Vishal Nagamootoo for Guyana.
‘Tiger’, as he is known to many, has presented two of his most prized run-scoring bats to the Prime Minister over the years.
Prime Minister Nagamootoo has expressed his elation that ‘Tiger’ has been honoured as a Caribbean hero and icon.
