Australian Federal Police AFP troll England after Australia retain Ashes
The Australian Federal Police (AFP) celebrated their country’s victory against England in the fourth series of Test of the Ashes 2019 by mocking and troll opponents on social media. Tim Paine’s men won the match by 185 runs to take an undisputed 2-1 lead in the five-match series.
Australia, which only needed to draw the series, retains the urn. The AFP labeled the London Metropolitan Police Service and the New Zealand Police, and blatantly mentioned that an English gang ‘stole a valuable cup’ from the hands of the BlackCaps in the summer and are happy to see that the activities of this gang have foiled and the ‘urn is back where it belongs.’
“It’s good to see reports that a group of Australians in Manchester overnight have thwarted the activities of a gang involved in a series of robberies against Australians and Kiwis in England this northern summer. You’re welcome, the Metropolitan Police Service,” the AFP publication said.
“This gang previously stole a valuable cup from the hands of some of our New Zealand neighbours in London, followed by one of its red-haired members trying to take an old urn from their rightful owners during a visit to Headingley.”
“We are glad to see that the urn is back where it belongs, even if the content seems to be badly damaged by fire. We’re sorry, the New Zealand police, we understand that the gang doesn’t want to deliver the cup in the short term,” he added.
In the comments section, the AFP added: “But seriously, the AFP has links with multiple law enforcement agencies in foreign countries to help combat transnational crime and facilitate police cooperation. The opportunity to show off our sporting prowess is just an advantage of being good friends! “
Josh Hazlewood claimed the winning wicket on the last day catching Craig Overton lbw when Australia rejected England’s second innings for 197 in the afternoon session to take a 2-1 lead in the five-game series.
Former Australian captain Steve Smith scored a staggering 671 runs in a 134.2 innings average, including three hundred, ahead of the fifth and final test that will begin later this week at The Oval.
