"Chanders" or "Tiger" as Windies teammates and fans know him, debuted for the Windies when he was 19 on home soil in Guyana against England in 1994 starting off his international career with a Test 50.

The left-hander's display of technical skill and an aptitude for holding his ground against fast bowling attacks in spite of his slight frame, earned him his deserved place on the senior team.

His maturity and patience at the crease has provided stable support for his teammates over the years - the most memorable to date was his 75 n.o anchoring role in Brian Lara's historic world record performance in Antigua in 1995.

Early in his career, as a young teenager, Chanders ability revealed itself when he made the highest ever tournament score at the time, (204 n.o.), appearing for the young Windies against Young England, a clear indication of things to come.

Chanderpaul's top Test score is 140, made against India in Georgetown (April 12, 2002).

Chanderpaul has not lived up to his fullest potential over the last few years as nagging injuries and poor health have hampered him.

Chanderpaul also bowls a decent leg-break with best figures of 1-2, and 3-18 in Test and ODI's.
