Windies coach gives team a few home truths

COACHES normally like to see the positives, even after a defeat - not West Indian coach Ottis Gibson.

The former paceman was still seething yesterday after his side's humiliating second Test defeat inside three days against New Zealand in Wellington on Friday.

The Windies went 1-0 down in the best of three series after the innings and 73-run loss and Gibson (pictured) wasn't about to give his players time off to do some soul-searching.

They spent the weekend in the nets ahead of the series finale starting in Hamilton on Thursday.

Gibson said his changing shed was not a place for the faint-hearted.

"Embarrassed was mentioned. Lack of fight was mentioned. Those are things you don't want to be hearing too often in your dressing room," he said.

Gibson said changes to his side won't be considered until he's seen the Hamilton wicket.
