Gibson slams Sabina Park wicket
Wednesday 22 June 2011

West Indies coach Ottis Gibon aired his discontent regarding the sub-par wicket at the Sabina Park for the first Test between the Windies and India after the end of second day's play.

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.

After dismissing India under 250 on the first day, Gibson expected his batsmen to take charge and score big in the first innings. But the 42-year-old trainer was left disappointed once again thanks to the inability of thee Windies batsmen.

"We keep putting ourselves in good position...our batting has been a real problem. We just not have been able to put together big scores," he said.

The home side will look to dismiss the Indians out as early as possible with the visitors at 91/3 at the end of second day’s play.
