Gibson remains positive
West Indies coach Ottis Gibson believed that his team hasn't lost momentum despite the crushing defeat in the third and final ODI on Tuesday.
“Four or five new guys coming in that were not involved in the one-day series, so they are going to see it differently. We obviously finished the one-day series on a bit of a low, but at the same time we won a series for the first time since 2007 away from home,” said Gibson at the Zohur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium yesterday. “That's something for the one-day guys to be proud of. Despite the fact that we lost very badly yesterday, I think winning the series is important for us.”
West Indies have new personnel in Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Kirk Edwards, Shane Shillingford, Fidel Edwards, Kraigg Brathwaite and Carlton Baugh. In addition, Lendl Simmons will replace the injured Adrian Barath in the Test series as well.
“Our mindset obviously has to change very quickly into the Test series as we are looking forward to the match that starts in two day's time,” he said.
“I think they [Bangladesh] are a very tough team to play against in their conditions. Conditions play a huge part here. We are not in a position to take any opposition for granted,” said Gibson.
