Windies T20 skipper Carlos Brathwaite warned other teams that they should not write them off in the upcoming World Cup.

Braithwaite believes they will be a competitive force at the upcoming ICC World Cup if they are able to replicate the form shown in the recent England tour of the Caribbean.

"I think the chances are good,’’ said Braithwaite. “I don't think we will be favourites and I don't think we will be underdogs," Brathwaite said.

"We know what we can do, especially after the series we just had against England. So, it's a balanced expectation in my opinion,” he added.

"The brand of cricket we played in the Caribbean if we can replicate that in England, we will go somewhere close to challenging for the title,’’ he said. “We have been traditionally a good tournament team and hopefully, we can win the third World Cup,’’ he concluded.

After stunning the English to win the Test series 2-1, the Windies put in another solid shift to tie the One Day International (ODI) series 2-2.  The result was somewhat of a surprise against an England team, who are the world’s top-ranked team.

Brathwaite believes the performance will give the team a boost of confidence ahead of the tournament, which gets underway in May but has rejected any talk of the team being among the favourites.
