West Indies legend Brian Lara has called for Shivnarine Chanderpaul to be restored to his previous role as batting at number three for the Test series against England.
The 37-year-old is currently being used lower down the order but Lara believes that he should return to his usual place at number three as they try to upset the current would number one side.
"It beats me. It is something that I've not talked in public about but I would want to know why," Lara told the Daily Telegraph.
"If he can be so consistent, why he wouldn't say 'let me bat with some more experienced or talented players up the order'? That's not only going to benefit him but it would help the team.
"Your best batter is going to be at number three - he is going to lay the foundations to win a match. If your best batter is coming in five, repairing damage, I don't understand the logic."
Chaderpaul averages more than 60 on English soil and is by far the most experienced batsman in the West Indies side that has struggled in recent years.
The first Test begins at Lord's on Thursday as England will look to win their first Test series since the 4-0 whitewash of India last summer.
