West Indies skipper Darren Sammy said that his team was in India in a bid to win the series and will not be carried away by the frenzy around Sachin Tendulkar's farewell series.

"We have respect for India. When you look at their recent one-day series (against Australia that India won 3-2) their batsmen have been in good nick. No one wicket is the prized wicket. Everybody in the top six minus Vijay has been playing really good and has been in good form. It would be a tough battle for our bowlers," said Sammy at the pre-match press conference on Tuesday.

Sammy, however, said he was hoping that the Indian batsmen commit mistakes.

"They have been playing a lot of one-day cricket. They have been on the go. It was a run-fest in the last one-day series. So hopefully their batsmen will come out playing a lot of shots and we will get some edges down at slip or some lbws or some bowled outs.
