The West Indies coach Ottis Gibson says he was fired as the West Indies head coach despite a statement from the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) suggesting otherwise. CMC reports that Gibson’s announcement on Wednesday three months after ending ties with the West Indies Cricket Board controverts a statement from the board which said the two had mutually agreed to end their association. Gibson and West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) cleaved ties in August on the eve of a series against Bangladesh involving 2 test matches and One Day Internationals (ODI). He has said in an interview that he was shocked when West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) president Dave Cameron sacked him during a telephone conversation. Cameron told him that players had lost confidence in him, he added. Gibson’s agreement was recommenced last year after joining the post in January, 2010. His best moment with the West Indies came when he led them to victory in the ICC World T20 tournament two years back.
