Chanderpaul thwarts Bangladesh once again

Shivnarine Chanderpaul's phenomenal run of form against Bangladesh continued with the veteran West Indies batsman unbeaten on 63 in guiding his team to 208 for four, an overall lead of 427, at stumps on the third day of the second and final Test at the Beausejour Stadium on Monday.

After captain Denesh Ramdin declined to enforce the follow-on despite a first innings lead of 219 when the tourists were dismissed for 161 in the morning session, the home side slipped to 100 for four before an unbroken fifth-wicket stand of 108 between Chanderpaul and Jermaine Blackwood (43 not out) killed off any prospect Bangladesh had of precipitating a complete batting collapse.

Chanderpaul, now in his 21st year as an international cricketer, has yet to be dismissed in this series and has totalled 645 runs - with just one dismissal - in his last seven Test innings against Bangladesh, including the current effort, dating back to the 2012 series on the Indian sub-continent.
