Chanderpaul 6th on all-time list
HAMILTON, New Zealand (AP) – West Indies batsman Shivnarine Chanderpaul moved up to sixth place on the all-time list of Test run-scorers after posting his 29th century yesterday.
Chanderpaul now has 11 199 Test runs after he was unbeaten on 122.
The 39-year-old resumed at 94 not out on the second day of the third Test against New Zealand, needing only four runs to overtake Australia’s Allan Border in sixth place. Border made 11 174 runs in 156 Tests and Chanderpaul is currently playing his 153rd Test.
Only Sachin Tendulkar, who retired in November with a record 15 921 runs, Ricky Ponting (13 378), Rahul Dravid (13 288), Jacques Kallis (13 140) and West Indies great Brian Lara (11 953) are ahead of Chanderpaul.
