The Pakistan cricket team returned to The Oval on Monday, the day after the fourth and final Test was forfeited to England following allegations of ball-tampering.


The players arrived on their team bus and were to head inside to collect their remaining equipment from the ground.


Sky News television said they understood the players wanted to speak but had been advised to remain silent.


The Pakistan Cricket Board were to hold a press conference later Monday.


The fourth and final Test between England and Pakistan at The Oval was sensationally abandoned on Sunday after an ugly row.


England were declared the winners after Pakistan were adjudged to have forfeited the match when they refused to take the field after the tea interval.


The tourists were incensed that they had been accused of ball tampering and penalised five runs.
