During most parts of Windies batting, there has been barely any close in fielder. The basics in field placing and attacking the batsmen were not right. You need to buy wickets in tests, even in toughest conditions. The west indian batsmen were trying to play safe and we allowed them to do it easily.

There has been a couple of occasions when the batsmen could have been OUT if there were close in fielders. Mis-timed shots or nicks could easily go to the hands at short leg, silly point or short fine leg if the fielders were there.

You always need to put 2/3 close in fielders while bowling in test whatever may be the position of the match. You need to force them to errors. Our spinners needs those fielders to get wickets.
