Warnie calls England players 'crass and arrogant' for urinating on Oval pitch

Sydney, Aug 27: Former Australian leg-spinner Shane Warne has criticised England players for their urinating antics and called the behaviour crass and arrogant.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, while players are certainly expected to celebrate victory, the incident threatens to take the shine off England's achievement in winning three successive Ashes series.

Warne said that it was best to celebrate within the confines of the dressing room and to go and disrespect something as ancient as the Oval pitch in such a manner was crass and arrogant.

An investigation has been launched and Surrey are likely to demand an apology from the ECB for the incident which happened just before midnight on Sunday as the players celebrated their Ashes success, the report said.

The incident came to light because journalists from Australia were still present at the ground, the report added.
