The West Indies showed some fight and tenacity to draw the first Test match against England, and the next step will be to be in contention for a win, starting with the 2nd Test in St George's, Grenada.
West Indies took motivation from the fact that they were expected to roll over and play dead to the visiting England side, and that showed in their performance as well, with Jason Holder scoring a wonderful unbeaten century to ensure the match would end in a draw on the final day in Antigua.
"They said in the press they would win three-love," said Devon Smith of the expectations leading up to the three-match Test series. "We've had the first Test and we're looking forward to the next two to come.
"It motivates me -- it motivates the whole team -- to go out there and prove them wrong for whatever they said. The guys are pumped up and looking forward to it. To bat a whole day and save a Test is amazing. A lot of fans expected us to lose but we delivered and we earned the draw."
According to Smith, the pressure is now firmly back on England, who will feel the obligation to come away with a win from Grenada. "We have no pressure now," added Smith. "England have the pressure because they are looking for the victory. Sometimes it's good to be underdogs. At least you have nothing to lose and something to prove."
Pressure is certainly something that can be used to describe the feelings of England's two leaders – captain Alastair Cook and coach Peter Moores. Fail against the West Indies, ahead of two big Test series' against New Zealand and Australia at home, and heads could roll.
Moores needs his England team to show their usual test nous, while Cook will know the importance of justifying his place in the team with runs, preferably one of three figures.
"(I am) desperate at the top of the order to set the tone well," said Cook. "It's always important, every time you play for England as a top-order batter, it's great to score runs and help England win.
"I have been lucky that I have had a very simple game plan on the mental side throughout my career and it definitely works. I am a resilient guy who can try and play each ball on its merits for a long period of time, that is kind of what my success has been built on so that hasn't changed."
What has changed, though, is the perception of Cook, who was once tipped for greatness and more as he scored one hundred after another. The best way to captain any side is to lead from the front, and Cook is no exception.
Having said that, however, the England bowling also needs to step up. Bowling was the biggest disappointment at the ICC Cricket World Cup, and the likes of James Anderson, even if he went past Ian Botham to become the leading wicket-taker in Tests for his country, and Stuart Broad must do more.
For the West Indies, a bit more tweaking in their batting, particularly the top order, and their bowling, and they could well upset England.
Team news: West Indies: Sulieman Benn has been dropped for this Test match, which could mean a place in the lineup for leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo.
England: Moeen Ali is expected to come in for James Tredwell, which gives England an extra batting option, along with the all-rounder's ability to pick up crucial wickets.
