Pakistan's 16-member team along with head coach Dav Whatmore, bowling coach Muhammad Akram and other supporting staff departed from the Jinnah International Airport of the country's southern port city of Karachi here Sunday night, reports Xinhua.
Pakistan ODI captain Misbah-ul-Haq, talking to media before departure, said the West Indian team always give tough time to visiting teams on their home turfs, "but we shall play a good cricket there".
"We could not do well in our last two series, this is the time we can perform and boost our morale. The whole team will have to take responsibility, one or two players cannot win matches," said Misbah.
Earlier Wednesday, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announced the 16-member squad for the tour of the West Indies by dropping some big names from the side.
The PCB's chief selector Iqbal Qasim claimed to have selected the best available team by making a blend of experienced players and youngsters for the tour.
The selection committee retained Misbah as the skipper of the One-Day International (ODI) team and Muhammad Hafeez as the captain of Twenty20 side.
Pakistan will play five ODI matches against the West Indies starting from July 14 before the two Twenty20s slated for July 27 and July 28.
