LONDON.— England cricket players including Kevin Pietersen, James Anderson and Stuart Broad urinated on the Oval pitch following England’s 3-0 Ashes triumph on Sunday, according to an Australian journalist. The home side were forced to settle for a draw in the final Test after poor light saw the players taken off with England 21 runs short of victory.
And a number of players allegedly returned to the pitch five hours later to take turns urinating while their teammates cheered them on. Malcolm Conn wrote in the Herald Sun: “While the centre of the ground was quite dark, lights were on in the grandstands with dozens of people still cleaning up after a late finish which saw the game go beyond 7:30pm.
“A number of players including Stuart Broad, Kevin Pietersen and Jimmy Anderson took it in turns urinating on the pitch to the cheers of their teammates.
“This could be clearly seen from the outside overflow areas of the Press box.”
Meanwhile, England chairman Giles Clarke has hit out at the way the final Test of the series was curtailed. — Mailonline.
