As the Chanderpaul saga continues to bother the West Indies Cricket Board, The West Indian legend Brian Lara has come out and defended Chanderpaul and said that he should not have been dropped and that his career has earned him the right to have a perfect goodbye from international cricket.

The 40 year old has failed to impress in the series against Australia and Lara felt that him being dropped out of the squad was not the right decision and that it was not right for the board to have given him fixed amount of innings to score the runs he want to. He also added that it was not about the figures and that it was the respect the player has earned in the two decades of service and to get what he deserves.

Chanderpaul will finish his career with 11,867 runs just 86 runs behind the record of highest runs scored for the nation, at an avg of 51.37 if he does not play another test match. Lara who felt that Chanderpaul who has done so much for West Indian cricket should be given a fitting good bye and pointed out how India gave Sachin a final series at home because he deserves it.

Lara also said that the manner in which one of the best player was dropped out and the way the players of great caliber were treated in the past gave him shredders. He wanted the WICB to include him in the squad and declare the series as a farewell to him and that the entire world will be able to know of it. He also said that the board owe so much to him and that he deserves better.
