Following England’s 3-0 victory in the Ashes 2013 with the 5th Test ending in a dramatic draw, reports suggest that some of their players urinated on The Oval pitch as they were celebrating their triumph.

The Herald Sun reported that as the stands cleared at The Oval after England lifted the urn, some players gathered around the wicket and urinated in turns. The report stated, “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 team mates.”

It is a shocking development as only hours before that, some of the players’ children were on the ground during the victory lap. This report comes in the wake of the Monty Panesar public urinating incident, where the England cricketer was arrested for relieving himself on bouncers of a nightclub.
