England chairman Giles Clarke has hit out at the International Cricket Council after bad light caused a farcical end to the fifth Ashes Test.

 

England needed just 21 runs from 24 balls to make history against Australia and wrap up a 4-0 home series success when - amid a cacophony of boos from an increasingly febrile Oval crowd - the players were taken off by umpires Aleem Dar and Kumar Dharmasena because of bad light.

 

Clarke said that its totally unsatisfactory the way the game ended - the rules are clearly unacceptable and he expects the ICC chief executive David Richardson to change it at the next ICC chief executives meeting.
