Gibson: Windies must adapt to English conditions

West Indies coach Ottis Gibson has challenged his players to overcome the expected cold temperatures and unfamiliar conditions when the three-test tour of England begins on Saturday.
Gibson is encouraged by the recent progress shown by his team despite losing 2-0 to Australia at home in a three-match series, but acknowledges that taking on the top-ranked English will present a more difficult task.
He says "if ever there was a case for home court advantage, this is it" as "going to England, for us especially, coming out of a very, very hot Dominica, going up there in early May is always a challenge."
West Indies has two warmup matches _ the first starting against Sussex at Hove before the opening test at Lord's on May 17.
