The Pakistan Cricket Board has banned its country’s players from doing push-ups as a part of their celebration after winning matches, said PCB Executive Committee Chairman Najam Sethi.
Sethi’s comments came after lawmakers raised questions during a meeting of the Inter-Provincial Coordination Committee as to why players remain silent over defeat and do push-ups on victory, The Dawn reported.
“Who were Misbah-ul-Haq and other players giving a message to by doing push-ups?” asked Rana Afzal, a member of National Assembly.
Test skipper Mibah-ul-Haq, along with other players, performed several press-ups following a historic win over England in the opening Test of the four-match series at Lord’s.
Revealing as to why the entire team did push-ups after the historic 75-run win, Misbah had said that it was their way of acknowledging the contribution and the hard work that the army trainers had put in during the country’s preparation for the tour.
ODI skipper Azhar Ali also followed in the footsteps of Misbah as he did press-ups after hitting triple century against West Indies in the opening Test
