Windies thrown to Pakistani wolves

Pakistan versus West Indies: They took great joy in the annihilation of their visitors without the slightest regard of the weakness of their opponents.  Source:

The directors of Cricket West Indies (CWI) owe an explanation to the public of the West Indies as to what was the reason for the recent tour of Pakistan. There are many questions that have been left like feathers drifting in the wind, with no one being able to grasp even one!

The visit comprised three t20 games in three days all in the city of Karachi. The team for this trip numbered 13 and was chosen or at least announced two days before departure. The squad arrived on the night of March 31 and without the benefit of a single practise session went directly into the first game on April 1, followed by games over the next two days.

Which cricket country that is part of the professional circuit will accept a challenge such as this? Which country with the history and tradition of the West Indies would accept an invitation where they couldn’t choose their best available team?  We, the long-suffering fans of the Caribbean, would like some answers.
