Shivnarine Chanderpaul Emotional: After the T20 World Cup 2022 is over, a new debate has started regarding the workload management of the players and their playing in the T20 league. Fans and former cricketers have expressed their displeasure before the World Cup due to injuries to many star players and not being able to perform as expected of a champion team like West Indies.

The great West Indies cricketer Shivnarine Chanderpaul has also spoken openly on this issue and has raised questions regarding the T20 league. Chanderpaul, who has been inducted into the ICC Hall of Fame, also recalled his era. Chanderpaul on Monday said that the growing T20 leagues across the world have reduced the interest of West Indies players towards international cricket. He said that the T20 league has had a negative effect on the players of West Indies, once considered a great team. During this, Chanderpaul said that we all gave priority to the country over money and played for respect.

Please tell that left-handed batsman Chanderpaul is counted among the great cricketers of West Indies. He scored 20988 runs in all three formats in 454 international matches. During this, 41 centuries and 125 half-centuries also came from his bat. This veteran scored the maximum 11867 runs in Test cricket, while he also scored 8778 runs in ODIs.

Significantly, the two-time West Indies could not even qualify for the Super 12 stage this time, losing to teams like Ireland and Scotland. The T20 World Cup has not started well for the West Indies and there was a controversy over their team selection even before the tournament. Players like Andre Russell, Chris Gayle and Sunil Narine did not show interest while Shimron Hetmyer was dropped due to missing flight.

Let us tell you that the West Indies have to play a two-match Test series in Australia from the end of this month, which is part of the World Test Championship. However, Chanderpaul has also expressed concern over the performance of the West Indies team, which has lost the last five series in Australia since 1997. He said that looking at the conditions here and the bouncy pitches, it seems that it is not going to be easy. Australia’s bowling is the best bowling in the world. Interestingly, Shivnarine Chanderpaul’s cricketer son Tegnarayan has been included in the squad for the first time and is expected to make his Test debut here.
