Going beyond the normal norms of cricket playing, Shivnarine Chanderpaul uses soft hands, canny deflections, and a whiplash pull-shot to maintain a Test average close to 40. After his operation in 2000, he rose high in this career, scoring three hundreds in four test matches against India in 2001-02, and two more in the home series against Australia the following year, including 104 as West Indies successfully chased a world-record 418 for victory in the final Test in Antigua. In the Champions Trophy that followed, he contributed to the victory greatly with a consistent performance. The following year he was appointed West Indian captain and celebrated with a double-century in front of his home fans in Guyana, although he was too passive in the field to prevent South Africa taking the series. In April 2006 he resigned from his captaincy and gave full concentration to his batting.
