Hats off: How the Pakistan team celebrated their win over England in the first Test at Lord's. Misbah-ul-Haq's side went on an army boot camp before the tour to improve their infamously poor fitness, and senior batsman Younis Khan led the squad in performing a routine of press-ups followed by a military-style salute in front of the ground's famous Pavilion.

The Pakistan team celebrate by doing push-ups on the pitch, a tribute to the military camp they attended. Captain Misbah-ul-Haq had celebrated in similar fashion on the opening day on Thursday after reaching a hundred that helped set up his team's 75-run win. AP
