DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — West Indies batsman Shivnarine Chanderpaul was named Cricketer of the Year on Wednesday.

The 34-year-old left-hander was a picture of consistency during the 12-month period considered for the award, saving West Indies on several occasions with his batting displays.

The Guyanese scored 819 runs at an average of 91.0, including three centuries, in eight Test matches. Chanderpaul did well in the One Day Internationals too, aggregating 598 runs in 13 matches with an average of 74.75.
