Gibson seeks to drive West Indies forward

Ottis Gibson has set his sights on helping West Indies climb the world rankings in all forms of the game, after agreeing a three-year contract to continue as head coach.

Ottis Gibson is looking forward to exciting times with West Indies.

Gibson had been linked with a move to England to take charge of Warwickshire, but the former fast bowler is now looking to guide the Windies to further glory, with the men from the Caribbean already the reigning World Twenty20 champions.

"I am happy to continue with the team for the next three years as we look to take West Indies cricket forward," Gibson said.

"There is a lot to do and things to look forward to. There is the Champions Trophy in England this year, we will be defending the World T20 title in Bangladesh next year and there is the World Cup in 2015.

"These are things we have talked about and these are things the selectors have been planning for.

"We will also look to climb the ICC rankings in all three formats. This is something we have to strive for, to make the move up."

The West Indies are 1212/1 to retain their World T20 title in 2014, while they are 1212/1 to win the 50-over World Cup the following year.
