landmarks when he became the

Tests yesterday in New Zealand --

Chanderpaul was undefeated on
122---drawing level with the late Aus-
tralian batting legend Don Bradman
on the list of Test century-makers.
Chanderpaul added valuable runs
with tail-enders Veerasammy Permaul
and Tino Best to help West Indies
post a first innings total of 367 on
the second day of the third Test
against New Zealand at Seddon Park.
It was Chanderpaul s 17th unbeaten
Test hundred and placed him ahead
of recently-retired Indian batting leg-
end Sachin Tendulkar with the most
"not-out" Test hundreds.
Chanderpaul now has 11,199 runs
from his 153 Tests, placing him ahead
of former Australia captain and fellow
left-hander Allan Border, who scored
11,174 runs from 156 Tests before he
retired in March 1994, the same
month the 39-year-old Chanderpaul
made his debut.
"AB is a great man and scored a
lot of runs against us when we had
a lot of fast bowlers," said Chander-
paul. "I m happy to get up there.
They are some really great guys up
"I m just trying to take each game
as it comes and do as well as I can...I
have to thank God for giving me that
hunger to want to go out there and
The previous day, Chanderpaul and
Denesh Ramdin, with his fourth Test
hundred of 107, shared a new West
Indies sixth-wicket record of 200
against New Zealand.
Chanderpaul said it was a satisfying
to see the team s plans fall into place.
"It was a fantastic effort from
Denesh Ramdin and myself to get us
to such a competitive total," said
Chanderpaul. "From having a good
start, then the second session losing
so many wickets, we managed to put
us in a decent position.
"It s the things we have talked
about all season. Here and in India,
we ve been struggling, getting starts,
but not going on. We ve talked about
batsmen getting hundreds and it was
something we were able to do in this
game so we are very happy about it.
