London: England cricketers` recent poor performance might reportedly be due to a presence of ghosts in their five-star hotel in London.
England paceman Stuart Broad reportedly changed his room at the Langham Hotel in Marylebone after being freaked out.
Broad said that he woke up in the middle of one night, and was convinced that there was a presence in the room, Metro.co.uk reported.
The fast bowler said that it was the weirdest feeling, adding that all of a sudden the taps in the bathroom came on for no reason and when he turned the lights on, the taps turned themselves off.
Broad added that when he turned the lights off again the taps came on and it really freaked him out so much that he ended up asking to move rooms.
Several players have had sleepless nights in the apparently haunted hotel and some of the players` girlfriends have even refused to stay there.
The hotel apparently hosts seven ghosts. Even Ben Stokes has had problems sleeping and the hotel`s own website even tells of one guest`s haunted encounter, the report added.
Room 333 apparently is also famous as ghost room, hotel also mentioned this in their website. It is the last day of test match, India is in a strong position and are eying a syrprise Lord's victory after 26 years.
