What he said, meant and definitely didn’t: Shivnarine Chanderpaul

What he said:

“Been called into meetings everyday, or every other day, spending hours answering questions. You never leave a meeting until they get whatever answer they want. That is what I’ve been going through. When you batting there are messages coming to you telling you how to bat, it happens until you get out, you know.”

Shivnarine Chanderpaul on how he was forced to play for the past year by the current West Indian management.

What he meant:

“Don’t disturb me, I’m batting. Let me focus.I’ve been doing this for 17 years. How many years have you put in?”

What he definitely didn’t:

“I’m a multi-tasker. I love being on call in the middle.”

“OK, you asked me to dance. I did. Now you want me to sing? No, what, a switch hit, is it?”

“Telling me what to do out in the middle? Isn’t that what got Aamir and his pals into trouble? It’s OK if it’s the WICB?”
