Nanan improving after health scare

By JOEL BAILEY Tuesday, July 9 2013

FORMER TRINIDAD and Tobago and West Indies off-spinner Rangy Nanan is steadily improving after a massive stroke which has left him temporarily paralysed as a result.

The 60-year-old Nanan was a guest at Thursday nights WICB/WIPA awards at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, Port-of-Spain and he showed no signs of regret over his condition.

Ive been feeling much better since I got the stroke, which was over a year ago, he said. Im enjoying watching cricket, as well as some Christian shows, which Ive been doing as Ive been home.

Nanan, who only played one Test match for the West Indies away to Pakistan in 1980, moves about in a wheelchair but was quick to state, Im trying to do some walking at home and my son Kevin and my family have assisted me whenever Ive needed them.

The retired policeman, who was involved with a liaison officer for visiting Test-playing nations to Trinidad up until 2012, as well as long-standing local cricket club Preysal, was also pleased to see the growth of Sunil Narine as the most talked-about regional off-spinner since he retired in 1992.

Im glad for him, said the soft-spoken Nanan. Its good to see him perform, both for Trinidad and Tobago and the West Indies. I know its hard work but he has what it takes to excel.

Nanan was always willing to impart his knowledge of the game to players locally and regionally, and was delighted with the WI teams success lately, albeit in the T20 version.

A lot of the players, I know personally, so I take great pride in seeing them. Some of them came up and greeted me (at the function) and its good to see the guys do well, he noted.

On a personal note, the former TT team selector admitted he sympathises with persons who are wheelchair-bound.

Before, I used to feel sorry for them but now I can understand what they go through, how hard it is, confessed the ever-smiling Nanan. Its a humbling experience and it has taught me to be patient, and not to take things for granted.
