Watch: New footage reveals scale of Long Room abuse directed at Usman Khawaja
New video footage has emerged from the Lord’s Long Room, showing MCC members abusing the Australian players as they climb up the stairs to their dressing room, with much of that being directed towards Usman Khawaja.
Alex Carey’s controversial stumping of Jonny Bairstow on the fifth day of the Lord’s Test ignited the home crowd, leading to boos towards the Australian team and players throughout the rest of the game.
Things took an ugly turn during the lunch break when the teams were headed back to their dressing rooms. Those in the Long Room, through which the players have to pass to reach the pavilion at Lord’s, made their feelings clear to the Australian team as they made their way back.
