London – England’s cricketers have apologised after team members were seen urinating on the pitch at The Oval as they celebrated the Ashes series victory over Australia on Sunday.

In a statement issued today, the team responded to criticism by accepting “we got carried away (in) the euphoria of winning such a prestigious series and accept that some of our behavior was inappropriate.”

The fifth and final Ashes test at The Oval in south London was drawn, giving England a 3-0 series win. Australian journalists reported seeing England players drinking beer and urinating on the field during a late-night celebration.

The England players say if their behavior offended anyone, “we apologise for that and want to reassure people that it was a simple error of judgment more than anything else.”
