Pakistan CricketÂ Board (PCB) Executive Committee Chairman Najam Sethi clarified on Wednesday that there was noÂ ban on push-ups.
â€œIn fact I think players should do 100 push-ups when they score a century!â€ Sethi tweeted.
In earlier tweets, Sethi said celebrations of Pakistan cricket team players were at their discretion.Â Sethi in his tweet said PCB high appreciated fitness training facilities of Pakistan Army and they had been utilised thrice in six years.
The PCB Executive Committee Chairman also tweeted that the media should refrain from politicising Pakistan cricket team
Sethiâ€™s tweets came after he was questioned in the National Assemblyâ€™s Committee on Inter Provincial Coordination over Pakistan cricket team players push-up celebrations.
Committee member Rana Afzal asked: â€œWhat is this that when the team wins there is a push up celebration, but when they donâ€™t there isnâ€™t?â€
Najam Sethi said the team started the push-up celebration after seeing captain Misbah-ul-Haq doing the same. According to Sethi, the purpose of Misbahâ€™s celebration was to show that despite being 42-years-old he was physically fit. Mr. Sethi added that the push-up celebration was coincidental.
