There is Renewed Self-Belief in West Indies Camp: Coach Gibson

Dhaka, Oct 15 (IANS/CMC): West Indies coach Ottis Gibson says there is renewed self-belief in the Caribbean cricketing side following their convincing win in the opening One-Day International against Bangladesh here Thursday.

West Indies won by 40 runs to rebound from the heartbreaking loss in the one-off Twenty20 International Tuesday.

"This tour of Bangladesh is tough and we are gearing ourselves up for it, strengthening our team and making sure everyone is in top form," Gibson said Friday.

"The mood in the camp is very good at the moment. Obviously we are a bit disappointed at losing the T20, but Thursday our focus was back and it has given us a lot of confidence.

"Marlon Samuels was in great form and Lendl Simmons hit his first century. Overall the guys stuck with the plan they had, and the results speak for themselves."

With a 1-0 lead in the three-match series, Gibson said his side was now eyeing the crucial series win.

"Things are going well, we've started this series positively and the boys are even talking about what they need to do to win the series," said Gibson.

"Thursday's win has put the opposition under pressure and a couple of more victories will see us clinch the series, something we haven't done in a while, so we're looking forward to it.
