While talking at the presentation ceremony, Misbah-ul-Haq speaking about push-ups celebration told, “The celebration was dedicated to the camp guys, they must have enjoyed it. I want to thank the crowd, lots of Pakistanis here and even the local crowd who were supportive of good cricket.”
Though, English captain Alastair Cook seemed annoyed with the celebration from the Pakistanis. 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,” pointing about Pakistan’s push-ups celebration.
“I didn’t take offence, but certainly at that moment in time it’s not pleasant for the first 20 minutes when you’ve just lost a game of cricket. They’re entitled to do what they want. Obviously it’s united them and it shows what a challenge we’ve got in the next game. But the cricketing gods” he added.
