ROSEAU – It’s not only cricket fans around the region that feel Shivnarine Chanderpaul was disrespectfully dismissed from the regional team, but vice-president of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB), Emmanuel Nanthan, wasn’t impressed with how the Guyanese was dropped.

The 40-year-old Chanderpaul had reportedly requested to have a “send off” series against Australia before apparently announcing his retirement, but instead the Clive Lloyd-led selection panel omitted him when he was 87 runs short of overtaking Brian Lara as the Caribbean’s leading individual run scorer in Test cricket.

“I am not quite pleased with what’s happened so far. I am hoping very much to honour him in a way that he deserves, because really and truly the heroes of the people need to be recognised and treated as such,” Nanthan told SUNSPORT.
