    He's awesome.

    EDIT: Maaaybe I wouldn't say "all-time great". But he's definitely better than "very good".

    He would struggle to make the top 15 batsman in the period that his been playing, hence why I only rated him as good.

    Don't care too much for the voting criteria, almost too broad. A fantastic cricketer who when in form, was almost unmovable. I remember watching him for the first time in 1995, a skinny young kid with an ugly batting style, but he looked like he would be around for a long time.

    Despite a horrible past 5 years from the West Indies, imagine that time without Chanderpaul. Shining light in a horrible era of cricket.

    interesting
    That said, he is better than his Aussie cousin Katich.
    Similar batting styles.
    Very good player,Shiv.
    Remember a period in the 1990's where he scored many 50's,just couldn't go on to 3 figures.

    I rate him by taking into consideration a number of factors including, but not restricted to:
    • Runs scored
    • Technique
    • Games played
    • Opponents
    • Era played in

    Very good. One among top 10-15 West Indian batsmen ever for sure, which in itself is no mean thing (considering who all would be in the top 8-10).... And one of the 2 best West Indian batsmen in the last 20 years....
