Port of Spain (Trinidad): As Shiv Chanderpaul faces the Indian team in the final Test in Dominica, his elder son Tagenarine Chanderpaul will battle against his regional counterparts in the West Indies Under 15 tournament in Trinidad.

Tagenarine did not get a chance to feature in the first round match between Guyana and Trinidad & Tobago as rain washed out the two-day feature.

Guyana will take on Leeward Islands starting on Wednesday and weather permitting Tagenarine will have a chance to show his worth as a batsman.

Not unlike his world-renowned father, Tagenarine has been scoring prolifically in domestic cricket in Guyana and will want to take his form into the regional tournament.
