ENG vs AUS, Lord’s Test Ashes Series: The thrill was seen on a different level on the 5th day of the Lord’s Test between England and Australia. After the run out of Johnny Bairstow, the anger of the fans of the England team present in the stadium was clearly visible on the Australian team. MCC members were seen having an altercation with Australian players Usman Khawaja and David Warner while leaving the long room at Lord’s when play was stopped at lunch.
After this incident, MCC is also facing a lot of criticism. Now taking action against 3 members, they have suspended them till the completion of the investigation. The MCC issued a statement on its behalf, saying that the incident of abusing and manhandling Australian players would be investigated. MCC has also suspended 3 members as well.
Usman Khawaja expressed disappointment over the incident
Khwaja further said that I was not going to listen to his words by keeping quiet. That’s why I talked to only a few of them because they were making big allegations and it was necessary to answer them. He kept on talking and I said ok you have membership here. To be honest it was a very bad experience because you expect better behavior from the members.
