Opener Runako Morton hopes to continue his good form when the West Indies square up against India in the third one-dayer in St Lucia on Friday.
Morton scored 42 from 51 balls as the Windies went down during the high-scoring opener in Jamaica and then hit an unbeaten 85 to see them home in the second match.
The 30-year-old says he doesn't want to get too carried away after two superb knocks.
"I always like to think positive and since I came back into the team I have been looking to put my best foot forward for the team," he said. "I don't want to get too much ahead of myself. I am taking the positives from those two knocks. From the start of the year I have been feeling quite relaxed at the crease and I am getting the results."
The hosts have an average record at the Beausejour Cricket Ground, winning five of the 10 matches they have contested at the ground.
However, Morton hopes for another good team effort in St Lucia to help the Windies to an unassailable lead in the series.
"The series is level 1-1. As always I will be looking to win. We will be looking to put in another good team effort as we showed in Jamaica. Players are putting their hands up and putting in good performances and we are confident."
