Lara Wants Chanderpaul to Bat Higher

Posted on May 28, 2012 by

West Indian cricketing legend Brian Lara has called upon Shivnarine Chanderpaul, the top ranked batsman in Test cricket to bat higher up in the batting order against stronger teams like Australia, South Africa and England.

The West Indies cricket team are currently on tour of England where they play a three match Test series against the number one Test team in the world and after the first Test at Lord’s, they already find themselves down 1-0 in the series. According to Lara, he doesn’t quite understand why the left hander is so reluctant to bat higher up in the order.
