Former West Indian captain and current team manager Richie Richardson is expecting his team to continue improving during their tour of Bangladesh.

Although they produced a series of outstanding performances to win the ICC World Twenty20 2012 in Sri Lanka, Richardson is not getting carried away.

Richardson believes there is still plenty of work to do for Darren Sammy's men, who bet365 make 16/1 to win the 2015 World Cup.

"We've been seeing improvement in all areas of our game in last 12 months or so," Richardson told reporters on arrival in Dhaka.

“We are continuing to work hard, not going to take any team or anything for granted. We see a long way to go in order to bring West Indies cricket back to the top. We all know, the World knows, we are capable of being the World Champions again.

"We are prepared to do whatever it takes to get back to the top. We are feeling very confident, very positive that we will have a successful trip here in Bangladesh."

The West Indies return to Bangladesh just over a year since they won Tests and One-Day Internationals. They play two Tests, five ODIs and a Twenty20 International - their first since being crowned world champions.

The tour begins with a three-day game against a Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) XI which begins on 8th November, the squad for which was named by the BCB earlier this week.
