ESPNcricinfo staff

Ottis Gibson's status as West Indies coach is shrouded in uncertainty on the eve of the one-day series against Bangladesh. He was not present at the team's training session in St George's, Grenada, on Monday ahead of the first ODI on Wednesday. Assistant coach Stuart Williams oversaw practice, and is likely to take charge for an interim period.

The Trinidad Express reported that WICB president Dave Cameron confirmed Gibson's absence from training and said the board was in "discussions" with him. "He is not in Grenada, that much we can confirm," Cameron reportedly said. "Nothing [else] that I wish to confirm at this time. We are in discussions."

Gibson began his tenure as West Indies coach in February 2010. Since then West Indies have played 29 Tests, of which they have won nine and lost 16; 90 ODIs, winning 36 and losing 48; and 45 T20 internationals, winning 22 and losing 21.
