Pakistan should keep the winning momentum going, Younis Khan said ahead of the second Test match against West Indies at the Shaikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
Pakistan's highest scorer in Test cricket was down with dengue fever and missed out on the 400th Test and also its first day-night Test, which Pakistan went on to win by 56 runs.
Pakistan's most experienced hand is now focusing on the second Test and will replace Babar Azam.
"When you win the first Test your responsibility increases and you need to keep the momentum going. It's important that you win one match and then don't get relaxed. It will be important to keep the momentum, which we have started in England with the Oval win," Khan said.
He stressed on the importance of keeping the winning run going.
"When we play the next series it helps. When you want to become number one, you have to keep that consistency. We have to prove that we are better and deserved to be number one," Khan added.
Khan had hit a double ton in the final Test against England at the Oval in August to help Pakistan level the four Test series 2-2.
Pakistan, though, are wary of the Caribbean resurgence under West Indies captain Jason Holder.
And considering the nature of the pitch, left-arm orthodox Zulfiqar Babar is set to replace medium pacer Sohail Khan.
