It seems Pakistan’s victory celebrations  after defeating England has not gone down too well with English all-rounder Tim Bresnan. After winning a thrilling Test against the hosts by 75 runs, Pakistan’s players lined up in front of senior batsman  Younis Khan and hit the ground to do a series of push-ups.

The celebration:

After winning the Ashes on Australian soil in 2010-11, the English Team pulled out a similarly orchestrated celebratory dance at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. However, it was a dance that came back to haunt them after being handed a 5-0 drubbing in the 2013-14 series. And Tim Bresnan, who was involved in both those Ashes series, took to twitter to warn the Pakistani players that they could suffer a similar fate.

Earlier, English captain Alastair Cook too did not look impressed with the push-up celebration. After the match, Cook said:  “It’s never nice to lose at Lord’s and see the opposition like they were at the end. We’ll use that as motivation.

You don’t take offence but certainly at that emotive time in the first 20 minutes or so after the game, it isn’t pleasant viewing when you’ve just lost.

It’s not pleasant, they’re entitled to do what they want. It’s united them and shows what a challenge we’ve got.”

The celebration was first done by Pakistan skipper Misbah-ul-Haq, after he completed his century on day one. He later explained it as a reference to the army boot camp in Abbottabad undergone by the Pakistan team before arriving in England.

After the match, Misbah said:

“It’s a small tribute to all those army men who were working really hard for us at the boot camp. It’s a good message. One thing we learned from there was those army people are not getting much of a salary but for this flag and this Pakistani nation they want to sacrifice their lives. So that’s a big motivation for all of us. I think everyone now is really putting in the effort for that flag and nation.”

    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan. You will never walk alone.
