Everest congratulates Chanderpaul, Nandu on momentous achievements


In a statement on Sunday, the Executive members of the Everest Cricket Club extended congratulations to Tagenarine Chanderpaul and Matthew Nandu on their phenomenal accomplishments on the field.

Chanderpaul, who had a sterling Test debut in Australia, converted his maiden Test century into a majestic 207* in just his fifth innings during the ongoing tour of Zimbabwe.

He became the first Windies opener not called Kraigg Brathwaite to score a Test hundred since Chris Gayle in March 2013.

He and Brathwaite produced the first-ever triple-century opening partnership for West Indies in Tests as they batted for 114 overs in Bulawayo to put Zimbabwe through the grind.


More so, he became the 10th West Indian to covert his maiden Test century into a double, and the young Chanderpaul has also moved beyond his father, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, best score of 203* in Tests.

On the other hand, 19-year-old, Nandu became the fourth Guyanese and the first since Sudesh Dhaniram in 1987, to score a First-Class century on debut with a score of 126 against Barbados Pride at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, Antigua.

He followed that up with a battling 60, which helped the Guyana Harpy Eagles draw against Windward Volcanoes in Grenada on Saturday.

“Chanderpaul and Nandu, two of our young promising talents, have done not just here at Everest but Guyana and the West Indies proud with their accomplishments. Their efforts and immense patience is a testament to the desire of both young men to succeed at the highest level and we wish them further success in the future, the statement added.

With an active youth programme, Everest hopes to nurture young talents to ideally go on to play the sport at the highest level.
