Chanderpaul failed for the first time
this season as his Derbyshire crashed
to an innings and 64-run defeat to
Worcestershire in the County Cham-
pionship on Wednesday.
Behind by 213 on first innings, Der-

had scored 91, 75 not out, 52, 82 and
32.This time, however, he failed to bolster
Derbyshire and was one of two early
wickets to fall to 21-year-old seamer
Charles Morris (2-25), as the visitors
slipped to 29 for three.
Only captain Wayne Madsen with 56
offered any real resistance as Pakistan
off-spinner Saeed Ajmal ripped through
the middle order with four for 40.
At Hove, Barbados and England all-
rounder Chris Jordan also failed to save
Sussex as they went under by an innings
and 11 runs early on the final day

(2/12) and captain Michael Ambard
(2/27) combined to snatch nine wick-
ets, as Tobago fell for 101. Gereeb Louis
stood tall for Tobago, scoring 41.
This left North the simple task of
getting 54 to win, which it got with
the loss of one wicket. Ambard and
Navin Bedaisse were both unbeaten
at the crease, hitting 19 and 16 respec-
