The elder son of West Indies Test batsman Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Tagenarine represented GYO, Georgetown and Demerara county before making his debut for Guyana Under-15s in 2010. In 2012 Tagenarine represented Guyana at the Under-17 in the inaugural regional championship in Tobago and in the Under-19 regional championship in Barbados.
He won the Regional Under-15 Cricketer of the Year award at the 2011 Guyana Cricket Board awards ceremony.
A natural right-hander, Tagenarine was advised to bat left-handed at an early age. He spent many hours practicing batting on the same concrete strip in his front yard, under the watchful eyes of his grandfather Khemraj, as his father did. He is also a dour batsman - very watchful, difficult to dislodge and capable of spending a lot of time at the wicket. One of his unique skills is his ability to bowl either right-handed or left-handed.
He made his first class debut in March 2013 in Antigua, for Guyana against the Leewards, playing alongside his father Shivnarine. In 2013 Tagenarine represented Stainsby Hall Cricket Club, in Derbyshire, England.
In 2012, he achieved outstanding results in the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) examination, obtaining passing grades in 10 subjects - 8 at Grade 1 (including 5 distinctions) and 2 at Grade 2.
