We've had many players continuing the legacy of their proud fathers on the cricket grounds.

Australian great Neil Harvey and his son Ian Harvey, former Indian captain Lala Amarnath and Mohinder Amarnath, New Zealanders Walter Hadlee and Richard Hadlee are among them.

However, the instances of father and son featuring in the same eleven in a first class match and scoring fifties in the same innings are not very common.

Day two of the four-day match between Guyana and Jamaica on Saturday witnessed former West Indies middle order batsman Shivnarine Chanderpaul and his son Tagenarine Chanderpaul notching up half-centuries for Guayana. The 42-year-old Chanderpaul senior scored 57, while 20-year-old Tagenarine, who opened the innings, made 58.

Tagenarine, who made his first class debut in 2013, is a left-hander just like his father. Tagenarine too marks his guard by nailing the bail into the crease, a la his dad.

Chanderpaul, who retired from international cricket in 2015, is the second highest scorer for the West Indies behind Brian Lara in Tests. He featured in 164 Tests and amassed 11,867 runs at at average of 51.37. Chanderpaul also aggregated 8,778 runs from 268 One-Day Internationals, besides scoring 343 runs from 22 T20 Internationals.
