Usman Khawaja expressed disappointment over the incident
Australian opening batsman Usman Khawaja while talking on this incident from Channel 9 said that it was really disappointing. Lord’s is one of my favorite grounds. You are always respected at Lord’s. Especially when you pass through the members sitting in the long room. If someone asks you where is the best place to play, I will always name Lord’s, but what the members said was quite disappointing.
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 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.
