West Indies head coach Stuart Law says the regional side will have to raise their game and play "smarter" cricket if they are to get the better of Pakistan in the three-match one-day series starting here on Friday.
"The Test team has been selected keeping in mind the conditions in West Indies and the recent performances of players during the domestic and worldwide season", Pakistan Cricket Board chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq said.
The 28-year-old has struggled with his form ever since he shot to stardom in the final over of the T20 World Cup last April in India, when he lashed four consecutive sixes off England's Ben Stokes to win West Indies their second title.
"There were many hardships in my career but for now I am focusing on the present situation".
Pakistan won 24 of its 53 test matches under Misbah and, for the first time, occupied the top test rankings past year before a dip in form set in.
Pakistan bowler Mohamed Amir and team captain Misbah-ul-Haq plot their tactics.
The 42-year-old was named Test captain after a spot-fixing scandal crippled the Pakistan side touring England in 2010.
"But that didn't happen, and [the wish] remained a wish", the outgoing Test captain, who retired from one-day cricket after the 2015 World Cup, said.

Still, the bill was passed in both the House and Senate last week , with Republicans voting to overturn the regulations. The Trump Government is again in the news; and this time for signing a resolution that kills FCC privacy rules.
The right-handed batsman, who made his first-class debut back in 1998-99 for Sargodha, added that he would continue to play domestic cricket. "However, a consensus has been reached that the Test matches against West Indies will be his last series", Khan said. "Overall maybe Pakistan doesn't get much support, but we all, including me, make sure we as a country are behind our team and support our players so that morally they should go and fight in global matches".
After the loss, Misbah said he would take his time to decide on the future - reversing an earlier announcement that he would quit, which he said was triggered by frustration. "We just need to play good cricket", said Holder regarding the composition of the 13-man team, which features just one Guyanese in leg-break bowler Devendra Bishoo.
"I felt disappointed with some bad performances recently, but we shouldn't giving up hope and efforts towards the good". "You don't get everything you ask for".
His took nine wickets in eight matches and was rewarded for his efforts by being fast-tracked into the Pakistan limited-overs squad for the series against the West Indies.
Under Misbah's leadership, Pakistan also achieved the number-one Test ranking for the first time since the current rankings system was introduced in 2003.
He registered 10 test series wins as a captain, which is the most by an Asian skipper.
Former Pakistan skipper Wasim Akram said Misbah should be given a deserving farewell.
