Kingstown: West Indies captain Ramnaresh Sarwan said Bangladesh is an improved team and would not be taken lightly. The two teams are preparing for a three-match one-day cricket series starting Saturday. "They keep improving," Sarwan said at the series launch in St. Vincent on Thursday. "I'm sure they are not going to be any pushover." Feet on ground While the visitors have won just two matches out of 50 one-day internationals since the 1999 World Cup, Sarwan is not exuding overconfidence as he takes charge of only his second match while Brian Lara recovers from a finger injury. "Myself and the coach and the manager have been speaking to the players after the end of the England series so that we don't underrate anybody," Sarwan said. The West Indies split the recent series against England 2-2 and was strongest in back-to-back victories in St. Lucia.

"Every opposition is formidable to Bangladesh at the moment," he said. Whatmore added he wanted his team to be given credit should they upset the odds, citing improvements, including Bangladesh's recent victory over Zimbabwe. (AP)
