New Delhi: The triumph against Bangladesh after a prolonged lean patch has given West Indies the much-needed fillip, but coach Ottis Gibson reckons the Test series against India will pose a different challenge altogether to his young side.
"Obviously there has to be a lot of positives from the Bangladesh series. Guys like Dwayne Bravo, Kirk Edwards and Darren Sammy contributed with the bat and ball, but this is a different challenge," Gibson said ahead of the first of the three Tests against the hosts in New Delhi on Thursday.
"India may not be number one now but they are still a top side. India has the better line-up. They have a young side but the experienced guys like Sachin (Tendulkar), (Gautam) Gambhir and (Virender) Sehwag are back," he said, before adding, on a lighter note, "We will probably need to play seven bowlers to get them out."
