West Indies coach Ottis Gibson has expressed confidence that his resurgent side will knock Australia off in the upcoming Test series.
Gibson said, “There’s an air of confidence as well when you walk around the streets of the Caribbean at the moment, where two years ago, or probably even 12 months ago the average man in the street was not so enthusiastic about the performances of the team.”
His statement came after the West Indies drew the ODI and Twenty20 series
The West Indies lost the three-Test series 2-0 against India in November 2011, but gained a 95-run first-inning lead in the opening match and were involved in a draw where scores were level with India nine down in the fourth innings.
Gibson, however, expressed confidence in the West Indies’ bowling attack, which comprises Ravi Rampaul, Fidel Edwards and Devendra Bishoo.
He added, “They got a lot of wickets for us in all forms of cricket to be honest, especially Test cricket. I think over the last 12 months, our bowling attack has been as good as most around the world.”
