24th May: Mumbai Indians v R. Royals, 14:30 GMT
24th-28th May: 2nd Test, Headingley
The left-hander scored 116 not out in 343 deliveries to ensure that the West Indies ended their second innings 179 runs ahead - and India closed on 94 for three.
Chanderpaul had earlier been felicitated for making a West Indian record 133rd Test appearance and following his efforts with the bat, he was awarded honorary citizenship of Dominica.
His innings, which included key partnerships with debutant Kirk Edwards, who scored 110, and then Fidel Edwards, who made a career-best 30, took the West Indies from 40 for three - a position where defeat appeared inevitable - to the eventual position from which they saved the game.
His innings, which spanned eight hours, included just five boundaries as he put a customary high price on his wicket, scoring his 23rd Test century and sixth against India.
Other contenders for the award included his team-mates Kirk and Fidel Edwards, India's Ishant Sharma, England's Alastair Cook, Tim Bresnan and Katherine Brunt, Ireland's Alex Cusack and John Mooney and Ausralia's Shelley Nitschke.
