Pakistan celebrate Lord's test win over England with press-ups

London: An unusual celebration was seen on the Lord's when Pakistan celebrated their victory over England with the squad performing a series of press-ups.

Mohammad Amir took the winning wicket on his return to Lord's after a spot-fixing scandal as Pakistan beat England by 75 runs on the fourth day of the first test on Sunday.

Leg-spinner Yasir Shah grabbed 4-69 for his maiden test haul of 10 wickets as England was bowled out for 207 after Pakistan set a challenging target of 283 to win.

Jonny Bairstow top scored with 48 and defied Pakistan for over two hours with Chris Woakes (23) in a seventh-wicket stand of 56 but once Shah removed both, Amir wrapped up the innings quickly.

Seamer Rahat Ali (3-47) rocked England's top order before Shah took charge on a wearing wicket.

Earlier, Pakistan was bowled out for 215, after resuming on 214-8, for an overall lead of 282.
