BRIDGETOWN, Barbados(CMC):

Head coach Stuart Law believes there is enough ability within the West Indies set-up, to be able to transform the struggling regional side into a winning unit.

The one-day side suffered a 3-0 whitewash at the hands of England on Thursday after going down by 186 runs at Kensington Oval but Law said even though disappointed, there were enough signs there to suggest a turnaround could be achieved.

"First glimpse of what I've got to work with, there are some very encouraging signs," said the Australian, who was presiding over his first series.

"I thought we bowled particularly well throughout the series. [On Thursday] probably wasn't a great bowling performance but the first two were acceptable. In the batting we had guys getting starts but not anyone going on getting big scores and I think that's an area we need to improve.

"To be honest, I'm not pleased with the result but very, very happy to see some guys who have actually got something to give out in the cricket field and they want to be there to do it."

The West Indies lost back-to-back games at the Vivian Richards Cricket Stadium in Antigua to concede the series before producing easily their worse performance to suffer their heaviest ODI defeat to England.
