After we did so well in the Test series, we wanted to finish not just this tour, but this year on a positive note," said Gibson whose team won the preceding two-Test series 2-0.<br /> <br /> The West Indies came into the series having won the World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka in October -- their first world title since the back to back World Cups (50 overs) in 1975 and 1979.<br /> <br /> Gibson said his team needed to show improvement.<br /> <br /> "When we looked at the games we have played, there is a lot of room for improvement in all three disciplines. We just have not batted anywhere like we know we can bat," said Gibson.<br /> <br /> Gibson said his players realised the flaws in their performances.<br /> <br /> "We had some meetings about the way we have batted so far, a very open and honest discussion, and I think everybody understands that our batsmen have to take more responsibility for the totals that we are going to achieve," said Gibson.<br /> <br /> Gibson said a poor total in the second match was not acceptable.<br /> <br /> "I think it comes down now to people looking at themselves because we haven't become a bad side overnight and, from my perspective as coach, it's not all gloom and doom either.<br /> <br /> "Hopefully, the batsmen will take the responsibility for the bulk of the runs and try to bat most of the overs. To be dismissed, like we were in the second one-day, with 19 overs remaining is very disappointing.<br /> <br /> "Everybody is disappointed and so hopefully the guys will try to put it right tomorrow."<br /> <br /> The West Indian coach praised Bangladesh as an improving side.<br /> <br /> "Bangladesh have shown that they are an improving one-day outfit for a long time. We never expected it to be easy one-day series, but we just haven't produced the quality that we expected from ourselves," said Gibson.<br /> <br /> The remaining two matches will be played in Dhaka on December 7 and 8. The two teams will also play a Twenty20 international on December 10.
