It had been reported that some members of the England side urinated on the pitch at The Oval, which has resulted in the squad releasing the following statement.
It read: "The England cricket team would like to state that during our celebrations after winning the Ashes, at no time was there any intention to disrespect Surrey CCC, The Oval, or anyone else in the game that we love.
"As a team, we pride ourselves on respect with all things crickets, including the opposition and the grounds that we play at.
"We got carried away during the euphoria of winning such a prestigious series, and accept that some of our behaviour was inappropriate.
"If that has caused any offence to anyone, we want to apologise for that, and want to reassure people that it was a simple error of judgement, more than anything else."
England ended the series with a draw, after being stopped in their tracks of achieving a memorable one-session run chase by bad light.
