Pat Cummins has launched an extraordinary attack on members of Lord’s following their hostile altercation with the Australian cricket team during the Ashes, with the captain describing patrons as ‘pork chops’.
There were ugly scenes at the Home of Cricket during this summer’s drama series, with members contesting Alex Carey’s controversy against Jonny Bairstow on the final day of the second Test – which the Australians emerged victorious.
Usman Khawaja and David Warner were seen engaged in verbal exchanges with the members, who were accused of ‘getting physical’ with the players as they returned to their locker room.
Different members also allegedly threw several swear words at the players, calling them “shame”, “liars” and telling them to go home.
And Australian skipper Cummins hurled a blunt insult at the members, calling them ‘pork chops’, while stressing that he had become ‘immune’ to their criticism.
Australian Test captain Pat Cummins called Lord’s limbs “pork chops” after controversy during the Ashes Test series.
A controversy within the Lord’s clubhouse erupted when Australian players traded verbal jabs with members.
“Maybe I’ve become immune to it,” he said via the Western Australia. “The further they went, the more I realized it didn’t matter because they looked like pork chops.
“If I had felt there was truth in what was being said, or if it had been said by someone I respected and not by the crowd, it might have been different.
“I didn’t feel like it was too difficult. It was clear that it was over and we behaved very well.
“I saw a lot of people go on, get pissed off, and then I looked at our team and found everyone to be bright, calm and measured.
“I was pretty happy to be part of our team. And I was pretty comfortable with our position.

The incident happened in the Ashes’ second Test, with Australia winning and taking a 2-0 aggregate series lead.
England would bounce back to level the series and were denied the chance to pull off a historic comeback after rain swept away the fourth Test at Old Trafford.
Stuart Broad then angered Australia after being involved in Marnus Labuschagne’s controversial wicket claim in the final test.
The now-retired sprinter traded bails around a ball before the Aussie was caught by Joe Root.
