West Indies vice-captain and wicketkeeper Denesh Ramdin said that his teammates know the importance of Friday's encounter and would do whatever it takes to win the penultimate tie of the four-match ODI series.
Aware of the fact that a win in the third ODI would spare the horrors of a series defeat, Ramdin said that confidence is not an issue with the West Indies outfit at the moment.
"This is a very big weekend for us. We squared the series and it is very important that we win on Friday. I'm confident and the team is confident," Ramdin said after the team's practice session at the Beausejour Stadium here.
The wicketkeeper though admitted India would be a tough team to beat.
"It is a case of two good teams playing against each other and we expect two very competitive matches. We have been batting well and the bowlers did extremely well in the second match. Everyone is doing their part and we believe in ourselves and in each other," the 24-year-old said.
The stumper-batsman said about himself that he is improving in both wicketkeeping and batting. He said he is confident of getting better with every outing.
"This was the first time I had five catches in an ODI. I have been working hard and the hard work has been rewarded. It is always good to go out there and get some momentum and I was happy to do the job for the team," he said.
"The white ball was doing quite a bit and after we picked up early wickets we knew we have a very good chance of winning the match and getting back into the series," he added.
"I'm getting there. With every game I'm improving with the bat as well and I'm always looking to see what is required for the team and how to make things better," he said.
