Push-ups, salute and victory: How Twitter reacted to Pakistan beating England at Lord’s

The first Test match of Pakistan's England sojourn was quite the colourful affair. The thrilling performances, player comebacks and celebrations will certainly go down as one of the most memorable moments at Lord's Cricket Ground, often called the 'Mecca' of cricket. And cricket players and fans alike agreed that it was a match to remember. 

Whether it was Misbah-ul-Haq’s century or the amusing push-up and salute celebrations, Pakistan showed the cricket fraternity an all new side.


And since this is Twitter, some people also decided to infuse some humour into the iconic images.


(We do agree though, what's the deal with press-ups!)
The victory was historic, and tangents were made to some great moments in history as well!

We’re sure that these memories will haunt the English team when the second Test begins at Old Trafford. Naysayers like Alastair Cook might always be around to spoil the fun, but the joy and camaraderie around Pakistan’s victory truly portrays how much this win means to the team.
