What do the marks mean on shivnarine chanderpaul's face when he bats?

Players use anti-glare patches to reduce light entering the peripheral area of the eyes.

The markings visible on either cheek through the grill of their helmets turn out to be nothing. But Shivnarine Chanderpaul's are different. These strips are sponsored! Chanderpaul wears his facial advertising marquees to promote the mobile phone company, Digicel.

When cricketer Shivnarine Chanderpaul began wearing anti-glare strips under his eyes in 2005, a team spokesperson pointed out that he just simply bought the stickers at a supermarket, displaying the Mueller brand anti-glare patches. But within a year, Digicel owned the rights to the space on each of Chanderpaul's cheeks.
