Disappointed Gibson Fumes at Windies Batsmen, Pitch

By Ashish Shukla

Kingston (Jamaica), Jun 22 (PTI) West Indies coach Ottis Gibson is furious not just with his batsmen's slip-shod effort but also with the pitch which he feels is favouring India in the ongoing first cricket Test here.

Gibson said the pitch, on which his batsmen were bowled out for 173 in reply to India's 246 in the first innings, is offering generous spin and bounce which goes in the visiting side's favour

"The pitch probably favours the Indians. It's been a little disappointing to see the surface. It's the same for both sides but it seems to me the surface continues to favour the opposition more than us," Gibson complained after the second day's play which India ended at 91 for three in their second innings.

Gibson criticised his batsmen for letting down the side by losing out on a great opportunity.
