West Indies One-Day-International (ODI) captain Dwayne Bravo thinks the regional side is more comfortable playing the shorter format of the game.

As a result, Bravo says there will be no pressure on the ODI players following the disappointment in the Test series against New Zealand.

West Indies lost the three-match Test series 2-0, but Bravo says the vibes in the camp has changed going into the five-match One-Day Series which starts tomorrow, Christmas Day Caribbean time.

For the ODI series the Jamaican pair of explosive opener Chris Gayle, Marlon Samuels and Kieron Pollard of Trinidad and Tobago are missing through injuries.

Gayle is suffering from a hamstring injury, Pollard a knee injury and Samuels a chronic right-wrist injury.

Bravo says the three players will be missed, but he is expecting the young players to rise to the occasion based on what has transpired at the training sessions.
