Cricket: Chanderpaul passes Border for No.6 on top run-scorers list
HAMILTON, New Zealand (AFP) - Veteran West Indies batsman Shivnarine Chanderpaul was hailed "a legend" on Friday after overtaking Australian Allan Border as the sixth-highest all-time run scorer in Test cricket.
His 122 not out after two days in the third Test against New Zealand was also his 29th century and his 17th unbeaten, putting him one ahead of Indian great Sachin Tendulkar as the batsman with the most unbeaten Test hundreds.
Chanderpaul now has 11,199 runs from his 153 Tests.
Border scored 11,174 runs from 156 Tests before he retired in March 1994, the same month the 39-year-old made his debut.
