West Indies head coach Ottis Gibson said they have a lot of respect for Chanderpaul and it is great to have him in their dressing room.

"Sachin is playing his 200th game. He is a legend in India and around the world. Shiv is also a legend in our dressing room. Whilst we salute and celebrate Sachin, we also salute and celebrate Shiv. It is a wonderful achievement for him to be around so long and still enjoying his cricket," Gibson told reporters after team practice.

"He is same on the field and same around the dressing room. We are very happy to have him around in our dressing room and make his 150th appearance for West Indies," he said.
