Quick-Fire Questions with Shiv Chanderpaul

ShivChanderpaulWest Indies batsman Shivnarine Chanderpaul is the next man to sit down with former all-rounder Jake Needham as he answers quick-fire questions about his Derbyshire team-mates.

This is the next in a series of quick-fire interviews with members of the playing and coaching staff as they reveal all about their fellow Derbyshire colleagues. 

Who is the comedian in the team?
I would have to say Tina [Mark Turner]. He’ll see anything and make a joke out of it. He’s a really funny guy.

Who is the worst driver?
So far the guys have been pretty steady. I haven’t had any issues with them so far!

Who has the safest pair of hands?
I would say Madders is the one I’ve seen who has taken some seriously good catches for us.  I must say that the rest of us have dropped a few, so I will have to go with Madders.

Who spends the longest in front of the mirror?
I don’t really check these things!

Who is the most vocal in the dressing room?
Sometimes the Captain will do that. Sometimes it’s Groeners. They tend to be the two guys that will be vocal in the dressing when it’s required.

Which team-mate do you most enjoy batting with?
For me it would be Mads. We spent a lot of time together in the middle and we got to know one another’s games so I would say Mads.

Who were the toughest opponents you faced in 2013?
Probably Durham with their attack. On the wicket we played on which helped the bowlers, they were really tough to face.

What was your most important innings?
This season it would have to be at Somerset. It was a wearing wicket and they had two good spinners operating. I thought anything over 100 would have been difficult to get, that was my thought when fielding. Everyone came into bat and fought the whole way and that really stood out for me.

What is your favourite ground?
I would have to say Lords. It is the home of cricket and when you walk out there you have a different feeling and you really want to do well there.
