West Indies Coach Blamed Side’s Batsmen For Defeat

West Indies head coach Otis Gibson has blamed the side’s batsmen for their 189-run defeat to New Zealand in the 1st Cricket Test match which ended in Kingston Jamaica on Wednesday.

According to windiescricket.com Gibson has blasted the Regional side’s batting in the two innings as bitterly disappointing after they scored 262 and 216 with only two top-order batsmen making fifties.

He said obviously he is very disappointed with the way they batted especially.

Gibson said by all accounts, after the first day’s play, they agreed in the dressing room afterwards that it was a flat pitch. So to have a batting performance like that over two innings is bitterly disappointing, and something that they need to put right as quickly as possible.

New Zealand crushed West Indies inside four days at Sabina Park to claim only their second-ever win in the Caribbean.

The Caribbean side collapsed in less than a session and a half, attempting to chase the 403 victory target.
