I thought it was one of those offences like littering and urinating in the street that could be hit with a spot fine but apparently not. Though it may be cited for gross misconduct in the workplace, and can be an offence if causing harassment, alarm or distress/breach of the peace in public spaces (which probably covers it from a sporting POV). And of course isn't permitted before the watershed on tv.

I believe about 2010 time, the police had a test case about public order and swearing, and some top judge essentially said it was so common now, it has to be accompanied with other behaviours or extreme situations to be an offence.

Depends on the situation as well.
If I bowl a bad ball or get hit for a four, I am likely to sake *modded* sake.

But then again player behaviour went out of hand and ICC needed to be consistent and set up some rules.

Surprised this has got little publicity but 8,530 attended the final days play.

The combination of good ticket prices and Joe Root's attacking declaration encouraged the crowd to turn up in numbers. At 10.55am there was huge queues outside the cash turnstiles - from Len Hutton gates to the New Pavilion and East Stand entrance to a wall separating cricket ground and houses, it was almost shades of Day 5 against Pakistan in 2006 where Headingley was packed out.

56,005 attended the West Indies test match at Headingley across 5 days (80% of available capacity). IIRC that figure was higher than the South Africa test match in 2012. Quite impressive considering the West Indies test series was billed as a hard sell and the publicity that came with it.

Yorkshire might get stick for not filling Headingley for England matches in previous years, but it shows crowds will come to Headingley if either Yorkshire get decent test opposition, or at least low key opposition matches are played in peak summer and not in May when the weather is lousy.

Bank Holiday probably helped, and very low ticket prices.

Me to. Nothing wrong with swearing at yourself. Like I've said before, if they don't want the public to hear it then discard the mics.
