England cricketers have apologised after being spotted urinating on the Oval pitch after their Ashes Series victory.

The statement was posted on the ECB website after reports several English players added some extra moisture to the turf around 11.30pm Sunday night (local time).


"The England cricket team would like to state that during our celebrations after winning the Ashes at no time was there any intention to disrespect Surrey CCC, the Oval or anyone else involved in the game we love.

"As a team we pride ourselves on respecting all things cricket including the opposition and the grounds we play at. We got carried away amongst the euphoria of winning such a prestigious series and accept that some of our behaviour was inappropriate.

"If that has caused any offence to anyone we apologise for that and want to reassure people that it was a simple error of judgement more than anything else."


England cricketers have caused a storm after being spotted urinating on the Oval pitch after their Ashes Series victory.

According to reports the incident happened around 11.30pm when several English cricketers were seen urinating on the grass whilst their team mates cheered them on.

Photos posted by English cricketer Matt Prior show the players celebrating their victory with some beers. It would appear bad light didn't stop that.

In other news there are reports the Ashes Urn is nowhere to be seen having gone missing in action.
