Moore upbeat over Windies chances

Moore believes his side can bounce back from the Test series defeat
West Indies coach David Moore believes his side can end their dismal run and beat England in the forthcoming series of Twenty20 and one-day internationals.

The tourists suffered an embarrassing 51-run defeat to Derbyshire in Sunday's Twenty20 match, but Moore is upbeat.

He said: "We believe we are a good one-day side. We can play very well. We have got some dynamic cricketers."

The West Indies face the PCA Masters, captained by Nick Knight, at Arundel on Tuesday in their final warm-up game.

Moore, whose side lost the Test series 3-0, believes his players will learn from the mistakes they made in the defeat at Derby.

"Of course, it was a disappointing result. We've just got to review how we played. That's the key.

"I just hope a few lessons have been learnt. We would be going pretty badly if we haven't learnt any lessons from Sunday's game."

Shivnarine Chanderpaul (arm and knee), Devon Smith (thigh), Denesh Ramdin (quad) and Fidel Edwards (ankle) have all been carrying injuries.

However, Moore is confident of having a full squad to pick from for the first Twenty20 match against England at the Oval on Thursday, if not for the Tuesday's game.

Knight's PCA Masters team blends youth with experience, including England veterans Robin Smith, Chris Lewis and Dean Headley.

West Indies (from): Chris Gayle (captain), Shivnarine Chanderpaul (vice captain), Dwayne Bravo, Fidel Edwards, Runako Morton, Daren Powell, Denesh Ramdin, Ravi Rampaul, Austin Richards Jr, Darren Sammy, Marlon Samuels, Lendl Simmons, Devon Smith, Dwayne Smith.

PCA Masters: Nick Knight (captain), James Benning, Nathan Astle, Robin Smith, Rikki Clarke, James Foster (wicket-keeper), James Middlebrook, Chris Lewis, Martin Bicknell, Nayan Doshi, Dean Headley.
