Tagenarine Chanderpaul stars again in West Indies Under-19 win
Published on February 19, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

ABU DHABI, UAE (ICC) -- West Indies entered the quarterfinals of the ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup 2014, beating Canada by 63 runs in a Group C fixture at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium Nursery 1 in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday.

This was West Indies’s second win of the tournament, and they finished second behind South Africa in Group C. They were led by Tagenarine Chanderpaul, who followed his 84 not out in a 167-run win over Zimbabwe with a 127-ball 93 that laid the platform for an eventual total of 289 for 4 in 50 overs.


Chanderpaul shared in a 62-run opening stand with Shimron Hetmyer (39), and then added 95 with Jeremy Solozano (50) before Solozano was trapped lbw by Nitish Kumar.

Nicolas Pooran then built on the foundation and attacked Canada's bowling, smashing 67 not out off 41 balls, including three fours and four sixes, to take West Indies to a daunting total.

Canada started its chase reasonably, but fell away at the end, losing seven wickets for just 29 runs to be all out for 226 in 49.3 overs. Canada was 56 for 2 in the 14th over when Nikhil Dutta shared in two good stands to revive the innings. Dutta put on 53 with Nitish Kumar and then 88 off 104 balls with Talha Shaikh. But when Shaikh fell, Canada slipped from 197 for 3 to 226 all out.

Jerome Jones, Ray Jordan and Ramaal Lewis took two wickets each for West Indies.

West Indies will now head to Dubai to play in its quarterfinal on February 23 against the team that tops Group B.
