The Caribbean side returned to series winning ways after defeating New Zealand in their two test matches, the five match One-day series and the two Twenty-20 fixtures.
Gibson says the recent wins against the Black Caps, which pulled the West Indies out of the doldrums, are a source of encouragement for him, CMC reports.

"It feels very good. It feels sweet to win two Test matches in a row is a good achievement, something we have not done in a while," said Gibson who took over in March 2010. "If you look back at this series - the T20s and the One-Dayers and the Tests - you will have to agree that we dominated all three formats." The West Indies completed a clean sweep of the Digicel Test Series beating New Zealand by six wickets in Jamaica after an emphatic nine-wicket win in Antigua.

Earlier, the West Indies easily won both matches in the Digicel T20 Series in Florida and followed up with a 4-1 result in the five-match Digicel One-Day Series.
