During the lunch break on Day 5 of the second Test at Lord's, Australian opener Usman Khawaja was repeatedly subjected to harassment by members of the MCC in the long room. This incident has sparked significant controversy, and recently, new footage has emerged that highlights Khawaja as the primary target of this mistreatment.

According to reports, several Australian players were verbally abused and even physically confronted by MCC members as they made their way to the dressing room during the lunch interval. The Sydney Morning Herald received a video captured on a mobile device, which clearly shows Khawaja being singled out by these members.
