Wary of India's lethal spin attack, West Indies coach Ottis Gibson has advised his batsmen to rotate the strike quickly while negotiating the slow ball bowlers of the World champion side in the upcoming tour.

The Caribbean batsmen had struggled against the Pakistani spin trio of Saeed Ajmal, Mohammed Hafeez and Abdur Rehman in the Test and ODI series, and Gibson wants his players to learn from the mistakes and perform better against India.

West Indies lost the ODI series against Pakistan 2-3 and drew the Test series 1-1.

India, top-ranked Test team, will begin its Caribbean tour here on June 4 with a one-off Twenty20 clash, which will be followed by a five-match ODI series and three Tests.
