West Indies opener Johnson Charles says the team is coming together at just about the right time as they gear up for the ICC World Cup qualifiers in Zimbabwe in a few weeks.

The Windies will be battling for the two remaining spots at the World Cup in India later this year.

As part of the preparation, the Caribbean team is currently engaged in a three-match series with the United Arab Emirates, which they lead 2-nil.

Yesterday they carved out an impressive 78 run win in game two, and Charles, who slammed 63 in the game, says the players are hitting form at the right time.

Former captain Daren Sammy is taking charge of his first series since being appointed head coach, and Charles says the two time World Cup winner is already having a positive impact on the team.
