LONDON, England: England spin bowler Graeme Swann yesterday confessed that some of his team-mates may have urinated on the Oval pitch during late night celebrations.
Australian journalists earlier reported seeing James Anderson, Kevin Pietersen and Stuart Broad relieving themselves on the pitch as the players held a private midnight party on the famous turf.
“We did go out to the middle of the pitch, all the lads, drinking beers, singing a few songs and enjoying each other’s company,” Swann told the Sun newspaper.
“I think the call of nature might have come once or twice, but it was nothing untoward.
“It was midnight, a private celebration in the middle of the pitch and the ground was dark,” added the ace-spinner. AFP
