Shivnarine Chanderpaul refutes claims that he's dead

Shivnarine Chanderpaul is not dead. 

The cricketer is refuting claims from an online article that said he died in a car accident in Toronto on Tuesday morning. 

“I’m alive and well,” Chanderpaul told Guyana's News Room on Tuesday afternoon. “I’m in Guyana; I’m not in Toronto.”

The article, entitled 'Man knocked down by a vehicle in Toronto identified as Guyanese cricketer Shivnarine Chanderpaul' was posted on
