Gibson calls for a fast start

January 28, 2013 13:46:32 UK

West Indies head coach Ottis Gibson has challenged his team to hit Australia hard at the start of their one-day series.

West Indies coach Ottis Gibson has high hopes of success in Australia.

The West Indians begin the five-match campaign with a double header in Perth on Friday and Sunday, before moving on to Canberra's Manuka Oval, the SCG and the MCG.

And Gibson is aware of how important a good start will be to their hopes of shocking the hosts.

"We're hoping we can hit the ground running. We've just come out of the Caribbean T20 tournament at home so everyone has been playing cricket and the guys have shown good form," Gibson said.

"We believe we've got a good mix of some young players and some very experienced players.

"We are the Twenty20 world champions and we are proud of what we achieved in that tournament, but that doesn't put any added pressure on the team. Hopefully with that victory and what we achieved more people come and watch us.

"Now we think about moving up the ladder in one-day cricket and getting ourselves in the mix with the best teams in the world. We believe we're a top team, but we now have to show it with the way we play."

West Indies are without Marlon Samuels, the man of the match in their World Twenty20 final win over Sri Lanka last year, so Ramnaresh Sarwan has been recalled after an 18-month absence.

The Windies are 1213.00 to defend their World T20 crown successfully in 2014, with England 1213.00 and Australia 1213.00.
