Kingston, May 7 : Senior Caribbean batsman Shivnarine Chanderpaul on Friday lashed out at the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB), saying its unreasonable questioning had adversely affected his batting.
Relations between Chanderpaul and the WICB soured after the experienced left-hander was dropped from the ODI series against Pakistan, which the visitors won 3-2.
Chanderpaul, who, a few days back, revealed that the management had asked him to retire, said his performance over the past one year could have been better if he was not subjected to external pressures besides being asked to bat at different positions.
"I think, given the opportunity, I might have got bigger scores. Every time I settled in and started to get runs, messages would come telling what to do and what not to do, how to bat and how not to bat, I have been doing it for last 17 years" Chanderpaul said. PTI
