Veteran wicket-keeper batter Shivnarine Chanderpaul has been appointed Rising Stars U19s batting consultant for the upcoming high-performance camp in Antigua as part of the team's preparations for the ICC U-19 Cricket World Cup.

The 47-year-old is the latest addition to head coach Floyd Reifer’s coaching staff for the camp, scheduled to take place from November 15 to 28 at the Coolidge Cricket Ground in Antigua.

“We want to welcome Shivnarine Chanderpaul to the Rising Stars U19s group and we look forward to him working with our young players at this critical stage in their development pathway,” said CWI Director of Cricket Jimmy Adams.

“Shiv has a tremendous amount of cricketing knowledge and know-how and he will be a great addition to the coaching staff. We already have another icon of the game in Sir Curtly Ambrose, who has been involved with the squad since the camp in August, as well as several other outstanding coaches,” he added.

Chanderpaul has played 164 matches and made 11,867 runs at an average of 51.37 with 30 centuries and 66 half-centuries.

The ICC U-19 Men's Cricket World Cup will commence on January 4.
