We are still not out of the game: Gibson

“276 is a good score to get. A lot of things have happened in the morning session and hopefully we can get a few wickets and put them under pressure,” the West Indies coach said. “They still need another 120-odd tomorrow. It is another day and I am looking forward to that.”

The West Indies resumed day three on 21 for two in their first innings and slid to 84 for seven through a defensive approach before blasting their way to 180. “Obviously, we could have been positive without being reckless,” Gibson conceded. “Somebody likes Sehwag stays positive irrespective of the surface but he has ten years of international experience and has been exposed to various situations. It is something our younger players need to gain as well.

“Ashwin bowled well. We know he is a quality bowler, he has done well in the one-day format and he brought that confidence into the Test format,” added the coach. “He bowled wicket to wicket. It was just pure accuracy and some balls kept low but he put the ball in the right areas and that is something we haven’t done very well.”
