WEST INDIES CRICKET has been hit with another resignation.
Embattled Shivnarine Chanderpaul yesterday announced he was quitting as West Indies team captain with immediate effect. < Read more >
THE TENACITY that kept the overwhelmingly outclassed West Indies competitive for much of the series was finally and emphatically broken by two Kandy men over the last two days as the second Test, and the series, came to their predictable end.
In a defiant, unbeaten 157 that started on his old Trinity College ground on Saturday afternoon and carried through until yesterday morning, the left-handed Kumar Sangakkara converted the virtually deadlocked first innings totals into a certain winning position for Sri Lanka.

on Saturday 25th July 2004.
Chanderpaul’s knock of 128 not out, his 11th Test ton, if not pretty to watch, was brilliant and equally important to a West Indies team that has been dominated by England the last few months.
He faced 270 balls, and though not producing the kind of fireworks or stylish strokes usually associated with a century so important to a team badly in need of some good luck, those runs saved West Indies from a humiliating loss.
