The trend it seems is going to continue as Pakistan celebrated the Lord’s Test win – first in 20 years – by doing five push-ups and signing off with a salute. Moments after sealing the 75-run win, Younus Khan neatly assembled the XI near the ropes and instructed them to start the drill.
In a moment, they got down to business and enthralled the capacity crowd at the historic venue.
Earlier in the Test, Misbah had performed push-ups after he scored his first hundred at this venue. The skipper revealed that he made a promise to Pakistan army of doing push-ups everytime he would score a hundred in England.
“It was my promise to the army guys in the Abbottabad camp that I’d do ten push-ups whenever I score hundred in England,” Misbah said at post-match presser. He further revealed that the salute was for the Pakistan flag.
The push-up mania gripped commentators too as Michael Vaughan and David Llyod were at it before the start of Day 2 action.
