The Guyanese cricketer has been the age-old West Indian cricketer who has played for three generations. But what recently happened is the ‘rarest of rare’ events that could unfold on a cricket field in a match. The 42-year-old Shivnarine Chanderpaul had a proud moment on the field when he, along with his son, managed to register fifties in a domestic game. He has more than 20k runs including both formats. He is also a left arm leggie, a part-timer.
His son is Tagenarine, 20, is looking to make an impression on the game and man, he became an instant famous when he scored a fifty with his legendary father Shivnarine. Senior Chanderpaul has already retired from the game but is still taking part in domestic games.
Batting for Guyana in the regional 4-day tournament at Sabina Park, Jamaica, Chanderpaul brought up his 136th first-class half-century only hours after his 20-year-old son had also reached 50 on Day Two on Sunday. Well, yes! they did not bat together at a certain point in the match but we are certain that will follow soon. The son, who opened the batting, got 58 runs before getting dismissed. The father who walked out later got 57, a run shy of matching his son.

It is for the first time such an incident has happened in the history of the game. The 20-year-old rising star has also captained the West Indies U-19 side.
