Video - Gibson Draws On Happy Memories At The Oval

West Indies have good memories of playing at The Oval, and according to head coach Ottis Gibson, this will give them a boost ahead of their Champions Trophy 2013 clash with India in London.

Perhaps most memorably, they won the 2004 Champions Trophy at the ground and more recently, Chris Gayle smashed Australia to pieces during the 2009 ICC World Twenty20, and Gibson says his team's record here will make them feel 'comfortable'.

He also thinks that the fact that so many of his players, like Gayle, Kieron Pollard and Sunil Narine, are involved in the Indian Premier League, could give his team an edge when they think about how best to combat the reigning World Cup champions.

West Indies won their opening match by two wickets against Pakistan.
