DERBY, England, CMC – Veteran West Indies left-hander Shiv Chanderpaul missed out on his 70th first class century on Wednesday, when he fell for 91 in Derbyshire’s game against Durham MCCU.

Shiv Chanderpaul ... hit 91 for Derbyshire.

Resuming the second day of the three-day match on 31, Chanderpaul looked set for three figures before becoming the second of four wickets for debutant teenaged seamer Tim Alexander, as Derbyshire were dismissed for 428.

Chanderpaul faced 165 balls in just over hours at the crease and counted 13 fours, and shared a 141-run, fourth wicket stand with Leeward Islands left-hander Chesney Hughes who hit 53 from 82 balls, with seven fours and two sixes.

Durham, who were dismissed for a paltry 67 in their first innings, finished Thursday’s final day on 158 for six in their second innings, as the match ended in a tame draw.

Chanderpaul played just two matches of the West Indies Regional Four-Day Championship for Guyana, managing just 78 runs in four innings.

He was one of Derbyshire’s leading run-scorers in the 2013 County season with 884 runs.
