Najam Sethi said that the players have been stopped from push-ups to avoid further reaction.

ISLAMABAD (Dunya News / AFP) – The matter of cricketers’ victory push-ups has been echoed in the session of Senate Standing Committee on Sports after which the players have been barred from carrying out the move further.

Rana Afzal, a member of National Assembly, raised question that why players remain silent over defeat and do push-ups on victory.

To whom they are conveying message by such actions, he asked.

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Executive Committee Najam Sethi assured that players will not celebrate victories with push-ups anymore.

He said Misbah set this trend to mark the win which was later followed by other players.

Test skipper Misbah performed several press-ups by smashing century against England at Lord’s on July 15, 2016.



"I promised the army personel I would do the push-ups if I got a century," Misbah told reporters after stumps.

The team also celebrated their triumph over England in the first Test at Lord‘s with a series of press-ups.

After Misbah, one-day international captain Azhar Ali also did press-ups on hitting triple century against West Indies in first Test on October 15, 2016.
