UK Sports Minister suggests 'urination' reports could be case of 'sour grapes' for Oz

Sydney, Aug 27 (ANI): Britain's Sports Minister has said that the reports of England players urinating on the Oval pitch could be a case of sour grapes from the country who lost 3-0 in the Ashes.

According to, England players took turns to relieve themselves on the pitch four hours after bad light forced a draw in the fifth Test.

However, the minister said that if the incident had actually happened, it was not good behaviour and suggested the ECB to investigate.

He also said that common sense did not prevail as the umpires stopped play with 21 runs to win off four overs. (ANI)
