Pakistan cricket team attended a two-week long boot camp at Pakistan Military Academy in Kakul to improve their fitness before the important tour of England.
When Misbah Ul Haq scored a century in the first innings of the Lord’s test, he saluted and performed ten press ups. He later revealed in an interview that he promised armymen that whoever will score a century, will do ten push-ups as a tribute to army.
Pakistan registered a win after 20 long years at Lord’s (by 75 runs), which is known as the Home of Cricket around the world.
