West Indies legend Shivnarine Chanderpaul has been named as the head coach of the senior and U-19 women’s national teams of United States of America (USA).

The 47-year-old will immediately get on the job as the U-19 side is set to participate in the Cricket West Indies U-19 Rising Stars T20 Championship that will be held in the Caribbean. He has signed a contract lasting for the coming one-and-a-half-years.

Excited to be appointed as head coach – Shivnarine Chanderpaul

“I am excited to have been appointed as the Head Coach of the USA National Women’s Team and Women’s Under 19 Team. The Women’s game is something I am a huge advocate of, and I have followed the progress of the USA Women’s National team with keen interest,” the veteran of 164 Tests was quoted in a report by Sportstar.

He added, “I have enjoyed being involved in American cricket over the years as a resident of Orlando, so to be given this opportunity to become the Head Coach for USA Cricket is an incredible one. I am really looking forward to using my 20+ years of international cricket and my recent coaching experiences, to help the women’s teams progress to World Cups in years to come, particularly the inaugural Under 19 Cricket World Cup in January.”

The 47-year-old hung his boots from international cricket in 2016. He has been based in Orlando in Florida since 2005 and has furthered his coaching credentials following the conclusion of his playing career.

As of now, Chanderpaul is the Head Coach of the Jamaica Tallawahs for the upcoming season of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) that will commence from 30th August, 2022. The former ICC Cricketer of the Year had also donned the role of the batting consultant of the U-19 men’s team of the Cricket West Indies recently. 

Chanderpaul is ranked sixth (164) and eighth (11867) in the list of most Test matches and runs in international cricket in the longest format of the game. The seasoned southpaw is all set to enter a full-fledged coaching career after engaging in first-class cricket for Lancashire post-retirement.
