Birmingham: West Indies captain Darren Sammy is confident of a win in the upcoming One Day Internationals against England.

"Everybody`s really excited about this one-day series and everybody believes we should beat England. We are quite confident as a one-day team," Sammy was quoted as saying by a news agency.

Speaking on the Test series defeat to England, the all-rounder accepts the fact that there is time before his team starts delivering in the longest format.

"We competed but we didn't compete for long enough over an extended period of time and hence we lost 2-0."

"In Test cricket, where you need a lot of concentration, it might take more time for us to get back and win games consistently because we`ve been losing at that level for a long time," he said.

"We are more confident as a team playing one-day and T20 cricket," he added.

The three-match ODI series starts from Saturday.
