West Indies coach aims to use inside knowledge
The West Indies may have a not-so-secret weapon when they start the Test series against England this month - Ottis Gibson.
Former England bowling coach Gibson is now in charge of the Caribbean side and told the England and Wales Cricket Board website he expects his knowledge of some of the opponents may help the tourists.
Commenting on the database he has built up for his bowlers, Gibson remarked: "We have a lot of footage and will trawl through it to see how we can exploit weaknesses."
However, he noted that while the West Indian bowling looks good, the batsmen have underperformed.
Fans enjoying corporate hospitality at the Lord's Test will see if the tourists can put Gibson's plans into practice.
West Indies captain Darren Sammy said the coach's knowledge of English cricket will be "a massive asset" to the team.
Jonathan Trott may be one player who poses a problem for Gibson, as he made his Test debut in 2009, after the coach left his England post.
