New Delhi:

India's prospect in the Twenty20 World Cup in the West Indies will depend on how fast the team acclimatises there, according to star opener Gautam Gambhir.

"It's important how we adjust after reaching there. It's going to be the key and we have to go all guns blazing," said Gambhir, adding "We are hoping to put up a good show."

The left-hander said most of the Indian players would reach the West Indies having played in the Indian Premier League and that would stand them in good stead.

"We are already in Twenty20 mode because of IPL. So I think it will help us to play well there," the Delhi Daredevils players told reporters in the capital on Friday.

Gambhir, who missed the last few IPL matches because of injury, was happy that the Daredevils have bounced back in the tournament after three defeats on the trot.

"It's nice to get back the winning momentum. We started well in the tournament but after that lost the momentum. We hope in the coming matches we will improve our performance," Gambhir said.
