With more than 7,000 one day runs in 235 games at an average of 40.50, Shivnarine Chanderpaul is one batsman that every opposition wary of. He may not be the most aesthetic looking but he is mighty effective in his own manner - grinding down the opposition with his resoluteness and determination. It has been a long time since Chanderpaul made his debut for West Indies and quietly he has went on to become one of the pillars of the West Indian batting line up. While the likes of Chris Gayle and Ramnaresh Sarwan are soothing to the eyes with their vibrant drives and powerful pulls, Chanderpaul is a player of daft touches and quiet singles. Picking the gaps, running hard and knowing the right moment - and place - to hit a boundary are the hallmarks of his success. In recent times, Shivnarine Chanderpaul has had good success in all forms of the game. Earlier this year, he hit a last ball six off Sri Lanka's Chaminda Vaas to win the game for West Indies which indicates that he can open up well when required. For this game and series the West Indies team will be hoping that Chanderpaul anchors their innings and the rest of the batsmen play around him. Chanderpaul has the ability to hold his own against any type of bowling which makes him more of a threat for Pakistan. Being equally adept against pace and spin, Pakistan team will aim to get him early on in his innings. Indeed it will be an interesting battle battle between Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Pakistani bowlers led by Shoaib Akhtar. Nabeel Sabir
