Swann calls players' act of urinating on Oval pitch 'answering call of nature'

Johannesburg, Aug 28 : England spin bowler Graeme Swann has admitted that some of the Ashes winning heroes may have urinated on The Oval pitch during late night celebrations to 'answer a call of nature'.

According to Sport24, three England players, swing-bowler James Anderson, batsman Kevin Pietersen and fast bowler Stuart Broad, were reportedly seen relieving themselves on the pitch as the players held a private midnight party on the famous turf.

Stating that his teammates may have felt an urgent need to go to the loo, Swann however, backed his teammates, saying that as it was midnight and the ground was dark with a private celebration in the middle of the pitch, they did not think that they would be noticed.

Dismissing the incident as 'nothing untoward', Swann further said that they were just enjoying each other's company in the middle of the pitch by drinking beers and singing a few songs.
