Georgetown:  While he waits for West Indies to finish the World Twenty20 and play tests, Shivnarine Chanderpaul isn't just sitting around watching the action from Sri Lanka on TV.

Ranked No. 3 in the world test batsmen ranking and the only West Indian in the top 20, he's been picking on local cricketers in the company of his 16-year-old son of high promise, Tagenarine.

At the weekend the pair scored an unbeaten 256 in a total of 312-2 for Gandhi Youth Organisation against Transport Sports Club in a 40-over match. Shivnarine tallied 143 and Tagenarine 112. Their team won by 125 runs.

The next day, they turned out for Tiger Sports in a big 30-over win over their hometown club Unity. Shivnarine scored an unbeaten 68 and Tagenarine made 35.

Tagenarine's considered a chip off the old block. A lefty like his father, he's patient, dour and hard to get out. Unlike his father, he can bowl spin off both hands.

He played for Guyana Under-15s last year, and this year the under-17s and under-19s, helping the latter to runner-up in the regional one-day and three-day tournaments.

When his father's home, they practice regularly, with Shivnarine happy to bowl. And when he's away with West Indies, the training is taken over by Tagenarine's grandfather, Khemraj. The aim is for Tagenarine to be ready to make a first-class debut for Guyana next year, 22 seasons after his father.

"I'm going to have to train hard," he said, "and hopefully I'll get there."
